We recently added these twin trellises to
our front entry patio area.
I love the look of a trellis and
try to sneak them in wherever I can.
This makes a total of 5 against the
outside walls around the house and
Here's the front entry before.
These jasmine pots on either side of my
front entry French doors were just starting
to grow long enough to begin their trail up.
First we measured for the center and
height we would use. I needed to consider
what size we could build using the scrap
pieces of 1x1 wood we had in the garage
for this project. I'm all about
using what we have.
We use this simple trellis design because we
can easily customize the size for our needs.
Larry cut the pieces angling the end cuts
as we have in the other trellis projects.
The right side before. I will need to find
another spot for this "M" monogram sign
board I made a few years ago HERE.
The right side after. We painted the
trellis using leftover exterior house
paint so that it would blend in.
The jasmine is now filling in nicely.
The left side after.
The left side filling in.
The jasmine has grown quite a bit since
we first installed something for them to
make their climb. I fiddle with the fast
growing wine, tucking it in, over, and
under as needed. Tweeking.
Our next project was to paint our front
door. Guess what color? Next post!
