Chain Link Fence Project

Do you have a chain link fence that could use a face lift?
Do you need to add privacy to your yard?
This project is cheaper than replacing the entire fence and only require basic skills.
About 6-7 years ago, I had to do something about our chain link fence. 
At 4ft tall, one of our dogs would clear it and get out all the time.
We weighted our options, but nothing was fitting in our budget. 
Replacing was not an option, either wood or vinyl was too expensive.
But I found this

3 Outdoor Projects

If you haven't seen much of my post lately...well, that's because I am not able to blog much.
And if I haven't been around visiting your blog, is that my brain usually shuts down pretty much right after the children go to bed.
You see, life with three young children is VERY busy, 
and with school back in session, our family life is even more busy.
(Welcome to Homeschool Life)

That said,
I have been able to work on few outdoor projects this Summer.
Or should I say "started" to work?

Here are the 3 projects that I have started, but not quite finished.

Staining the deck(s)
this picture was taken after the first coat only 
Most of the upper deck is done.
Few spots  that I cannot reach unless I climb on a ladder,
which I don't feel safe in doing it by myself.
Lower floating deck...I have not started to stain/paint yet.
It seems that on the weekends it's either raining or 100° sunny.

Next is the firepit area.

What do you think it is and what would you do with it?

A few months ago a friend asked me if I wanted this.

It was free.
She got it from a garage sale, 
but never got around to use it.
She finally decided to just burn it,
but checked with me first to see if I wanted it.

Truthfully I have no idea of what this was used for.
Maybe it was a library cards' holder? 
Maybe it used to hold collectible items?
The openings are about 4"x6"
Thing is,
what would you do with this?
It's heavy.
Overall measures approximately 3'x4'

Stay Frugal,
