New gate adds color balance and modern flair…
I just finished staining the new gate and hopped right to this post. I am really happy with how it turned out. We needed a little more of the orange’ish stain color on this side of the house to balance things out a little. We also wanted to stick with modern lines.
Sorry the picture is not so hot, that roof makes focusing difficult when the sun hits it. I like how the gate brings the accent color to the left-side of the house.
Here is a picture for you to get a better idea if you want to build one. And if you like things unstained, this looks pretty too. I like the color differentiation. If my accent cedar stain color was not already established, I would have loved to see how this looked with just a clear sealer on it.
I found a new home for my mini succulent planter – being Jewish it is likely the closest we’ll get to a wreath! ha! I like the way it accents the linear lines. Although, I do love the wreath Louis at Parallel 49 Palms and Exotics made, I would love to make one of those…one day! I will add it to the list!
That is what I have been up to, what about you? I would love to hear!
