The inspiration for this project was a decorative fence we saw at Walt Disney World's Epcot as well as the upholstery print in a booth at a Culver's restaurant! Inspiration is everywhere!
Steph has been wanting to replace her garbage can privacy screen and this idea seemed like a perfect fit!
The first step in building the new screen was to sand all the PVC pipes to give them a little "tooth" to help the adhesive stick a bit better. Tip: I turned my orbital sander upside down and clamped it to the workbench so I could use it hands free. It worked perfectly. The board directly under the battery is to help it clamp better to the table.
We were almost ready to throw in the towels when it came to gluing this, but we persevered and love the results. I can't believe I'm saying it, but I would make another project with PVC slices!
If you're wondering who Jacob and Noah are that we say hello to in the bloopers, they are Steph's little neighbor boys that are in awe that she's on YouTube! They are so cute.
