You know that I paint ANYTHING that holds still!
But I also love the natural aging of things, like the patina on my in-laws first bed.
For years we used it at the old house as a firescreen but it was too big for the fireplace in the new house.
And then I saw THIS on Pinterest:
I HAD to have a gate like that!
So after minimum pleading on my part, Juan Great-Handyman made me one out of his parent's bed.
Oh, I loved it!
It made my heart sing!
it disappeared into the colors of the landscape.
Reluctantly, I painted it white like the board fence.
And to keep little doggies in...
I backed the gate with welded wire.
The old chain also held a gate shut on Juan's parent's farm years ago.
There was only one thing left to put this beauty over the top...
...and they come around every night before sunset.
