Great Ideas for Projects


i was looking for inspiration for gates and projects and i came accross these guys

Pictures are just so Vivid and Colorful so many ideas for future projects so check back for updates

Others in stone walls

Many are emblazoned with the name of the cottage they protect.

 Arches or arbors with plants climbing on them, cover other gates

Still others are decorated with boxes


Or planters.

One of my favorites is quite tall but has this heart-shaped cut out in it. I peek through and decide that for this owner “home is where the heart is”.

I love the top of this gate , with its carved slats.

There are half gates

Double gates

White gates 

and blue gates.

This is the only green gate I have seen.

“Lilacs and Laughter” has this charming yellow gate

Perhaps you have seen this golden gate on Ocean Ave.

There are fabulous wrought iron gates. Some intricate

some rustic

But I must admit my favorites are the red gates
