|I took an old square metal screen that was rusted, cleaned it up and spray painted it a glossy black. I then purchased two black shepherd hooks and used plastic ties to secure the screen to the hooks. I planted two different clematis (light purple - Will Goodwin and dark purple - The President). I placed this screen outside my office window and I have these beautiful flowers to look at and a little privacy as well.|

|Great idea! I have two short crooks that look out of place, they are so insubstantial. Attaching something like that screen would be useful and much more attractive. Thank you for posting!|
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.

|Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I love reusing items. I have bought so much stuff over the years and hate to throw some things away. I either see something that someone else has created and try to expand on it or make something on my own. Most of the time it doesn't come out the way I imagined it. But, I do love clematis and they love this little spot in my shady side yard and so the trellis works for them. I love the purple against the black.|
