Dollar Store Garden Fencing = Faux Wrought Iron

A couple of years ago, I had a booth at Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors. The previous booth owners had really gone all out and added an arbor and mock-style doors on the front two sides. I loved my booth, but I still felt like it was missing something. Maybe I should show you a before and after blog post about how I transformed my old booth. Anyway. I wanted to give it some pizazz, but I just wasn't sure what that would be. Then one day when I was strolling the aisles at Dollar Tree when I stumbled onto those plastic, garden fencing panels. It hit it! I knew I was going to give them a makeover and hang them upside down along the top of my booth.

Here they are before I transformed them. 
 I just gave them a quick coat of Valspar spray paint and then distressed them a bit. I snipped off the spikes with wire cutters. 
 Here they are in my booth
Yesterday I was shopping in a store called Roses. I think these are only in the South East but I may be wrong. If you have never heard of them it is kind of like a Big Lots or a Fred's. They are starting to put out Spring merchandise and I spotted these. All of these were only $1 per panel. I think each panel is 24" long. I can't remember for sure.
These are so much prettier than the ones I used.  
I took several photos so you could see all the different ones. I know there are lots of crafty people out there that could do something very creative with these.
