Fun-Filled Backyard

Paint your fence a vibrant hue to add personality to an outdoor space.

Homeowner and designer John Tong (shown with twins Luka and Maelle) took advantage of an existing steel framework, using it to install swings for the kids. Tong, a founder of Toronto's 3rd Uncle Design, re-purposed the vintage indoor pendants to help set a dining room-like mood.
