Default Just a little wall feature I knocked up overnight!

Continuing on from my previous thread of revamping my garden I had a horrible block wall and am going to make trellis for this, but needed to do something to disguise the centre of the wall as it looked awful. So I got the back off an old shelf unit, got a load of old tiles, smashed them up, used silicone to attach them to the board and grouted. Then the next day put up batons on the wall and attached the mosaic to this. To finish it off I had kept the fancy scroll bits off an old coffee table, so I attached them either side of the mosaic and Thursday Aldi had these flower baskets for 5.99 so one of those finished my wall .
And voila........

that looks very nice, good idea,if you had of painting the wall first....maybe a cream colour, it would have stood out more

I didn't want to paint the wall as either side there is approx 10ft of wall, so a lot to paint! Also I am making trellis' 6ft high to go either side so think this will be enough once done!

Great sunny day we had today :)
