  1. Very cool! I think the upside down trellis and the kitchen rack was the coolest. I would have never thought to do any of this. Too bad I live in an apartment and don't have any fencing lol

  6. I love them all...but the plain jane silver garden gate reminds me of one I had growing up. Fond memories and great ideas for repurposing. ;-)

  14. I'm trying to find an old gate to use to make a kitchen rack like that! I want one of the ones with an animal sitting on the top...they don't seem to make them anymore but my great grandma's gates were like that. I think she had a greyhound or a horse on her gate. Anyway, thanks so much for sharing the idea! My husband and I are just crazy about it :D
