GARDEN DOOR, INSPIRATION THURSDAY

Every Thursday, we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm.  
Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and hopefully recreate it...enjoy!

Recently, we were looking online for photos of ideas for garden gates.  Our gate is starting to wear out a bit, and I was thinking of something different.  THEN I found this!  We LOVE this idea, we have the two posts (and with a fence on each side) and this would just be SO awesome as the entrance to our garden.  Our opening is 36" wide which I would hope we could find in an old door size that would work.  We even love the missing glass in the upper section.

And of course, it just HAS to be red!



Be inspired!

Check with Habitat for Humanity if you have one in your area. They have doors of all sizes, plus the proceeds go to building homes for the more unfortunate.
Also, check out Antique places. I'm always seeing old antique doors at our local Antique / Craft Mall. Sometimes them 'out of the way' places you can find great, usable stuff.
Check on Craig's listings or advertise for one.
Best of luck to you in finding one. If nothing else, make you can find 2 'skinny' doors and then you will have a French door entrance :}

Of course it's gotta be red - to match your barns!

I like the idea of a wind chime!

You could install chicken wire in the "window frame" and uses it to hang a wreath, sign or even garden hand tools. Love the idea!
