Gated Entry


I really like the look of this old gate and the fact that it is wired to the post on the hinge side and tied shut with baling twine. With the weed growing up through it, I don't think it gets opened very often! ;-)

Check out Friday's Fences at Life According To Jan and Jer for more great fences and gates!

I really like this old gate! I could see a clematis climbing up it...wouldn't that be pretty?!

Love old wooden things, and this gate fits the bill. Your pictures are so lovely!

and look where the handle is...if it had been round, I'd say it was a Hobbit door!! Nice find~

That looks like some of my hobbled up fencing jobs!

I am still trying to get a handle on that handle. lol

So rustic looking...yep a flowering vine would really look good on it!

I love old stuff...

Faye said...

Another instance of a fence telling a story? In this case, maybe one of thrift or solving one problem and moving on to the next. Actually this gate would be quite lovely if it were in a differnet place and hung more carefully.

Love the arched top -- someone took some time to make this!

Looks like some of the fix-its here at NoDak Herefords! Yes, duct tape, twine & wire are still commonly used to make quick repairs!

Candy C. said...

nancypo,
Me too! :)

Faye,
I think that is what made me notice it to begin with, the potential it has!

Nancy,
Yes, it is certainly well made!

Candy C. said...

Thanks Bro!! :)

NoDak,
We just used some baling twine down at the barn a little while ago! LOL!!

It would look really nice in a cottage garden, wouldn't it?!?
