DIY – A better use for Chain Link Fence

While I was in Canada we explored the beautiful Ile D’Orleans which is the idyllic island in the St Lawrence where over 30% of the produce that is consumed in the province is grown.  As we wandered the pretty green roads, one thing jumped out at me that unfortunately still sticks with me.  One of the homes (only one — and I know this because we literally drove every road on the island) had a chain link fence separating the front garden from the neighbors.   It was utterly jarring and it underlines my opinion that Chain-link fence — unless dramatically and artfully altered – has no place in residential design.   A better use perhaps — this interesting project — perhaps slightly uncomfortable — but probably remedied with cushions, I kinda  like this re-use project for ugly old chainlink.  What do you think?
