gate flower box…

I’m still working on my garden, and had this gate sitting in my garage, just waiting to be turned into a flower box.  my husband built the box and attached it to the gate—its huge 42” wide!

I spray painted the gate white and added the flowers. but, thought it needed something on the gate.

so, I went back to the garage and found an old piece wood.  with my silhouette (a cutting machine), I cut a vinyl stencil out, using the font-LD red hatter’s hand. the words were stenciled and I hand painted the rose, and added the sign to the gate.

this was inspired by this sweet pin:)

  4. While I love the pinned picture, Lynn, I love the gate white! It looks so pretty with the pink and white petunias, which I'm sure will tumble over even more as the season moves on.

  15. The gate planter is perfect! I have a twin to your gate that I placed in my garden, but your planter just may be my inspiration for something more interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Love your gate with the sign and new flower box! I have a twin sister to your gate. Oh, I guess by the comment above, maybe more like a sextuplet. I also had the same style of gate that was big enough for a double headboard, but after the last time I tripped over it in the garage, it was sent to the country to live with our youngest daughter. I'm sure you would have done something wonderful with it. :@
