Garden Gate

I am always looking for charming old vintage garden gates, and when I spotted this one last week, I knew I had to have her. If you are thinking that she will get a price tag on her and show up at Coastal Charm Interiors, sorry y'all, she is all mine! I have three ideas on how I will use her in my home. She might show up on the wall behind my sofa in the family room, or maybe a headboard for my bed, but I really think she will end up as our footboard. Mr.CC has been trying to get a custom headboard made for our bed for months now, so maybe soon, he will find the extra time and get it done. I will be sure to keep you all updated on how the headboard is coming along.

                                       Love the patina on her.

                           Love this custom headboard...how about you?
                           You can find it located at Antiques at the Loop.

                                Here is her little baby and she can be yours.


                              You just don't find a six foot gate like this one
                              every day...so I am happy that I found her as
                                        soon as she arrived at the shop.

I think it looks perfect as a footboard. I don't think I've ever seen one that large before and I LOVE it!

Okay . . . I stood and looked in awe at that very gate last weekend. It is even more interesting in person! I couldn't for the life of me figure out where to use it, so you win! I can't wait to see where you put it.

What a great find, Linda. LOVE it as a footboard, but the possibilities are endless, right? Have fun!

I LOVE the idea of using her as a footboard - and the mismatched look of a headboard and footboard is new to me, but looks great! Thanks so much for sharing at Revisionary Life Thrifty Life Thursday!
