Once again, I used Bob McCown's design for the columns that were placed in between each of the fence sections. I won't give building plans here, but if you click here, it will take you to Bob's site.

However, I strayed a bit from Bob's plans. Instead of cutting out the middle of each column and glueing another piece from the inside, I bought cheap molding and made the same type of design. I found it to be less work, and used less materials. The columns defects were touched up

with Polyfilla plaster, then sanded and painted with an outdoor oil based paint. I then used granite fleck stone paint (available at most craft stores) to give them an authentic granite look.

Finally, several applications of a clear coat were necessary to protect the fleck stone paint from moisture. Without the protective coating, the fleck paint would just wash away with rain.
