Love this project!!  I have been searching for somthing to use to hold jewelry and think this project on a somewhat smaller scale would be fabulous!!  I could hang this on the bathroom wall and hang necklaces, bracelets and watches on the arms.  I'll be going to the craft store tomorrow!

this is a great awesome idea, it's fun to watch during the wintertime when all the plants are gone.
thank you for this great tute and your sharing of course;-D

Craftstore on the Apple Barrel brand. (I'm sure it was just your excitement over the trellis's awesomeness.)

Hmm... I'm not sure if we have that here. Craft store or hardware store purchase?

Also, let it be known that my earlier comment is riddled with errors, and I'm ashamed of myself.

Thanks, Chris. Nothing climbing on it yet.

I used Apple Barrel Gloss, which is suggested for use indoors as well as outdoors. And a good primer underneath, of course.

Brilliant. Awesome in concept and execution.

Are the colors are outdoor approved? What did you use? I have a hardtime finding exterior paint in colors other than neutral.

Any plants a-climbing yet?
