Picket Fences: Salvaged & Repurposed

They are simple and humble, and traditionally organic.
They're nostalgic, and represent comfortable home life.
They bring to mind gardens, and the outdoors.

Used in the United States since Colonial times, picket fences 
are classic Americana. Check out how some creative folks have 
repurposed salvaged wooden fence pickets and turned them
 into unique home and garden decor.

  6. A great collection of pickets! It would be hard to pick a favorite. I love them all. I have a welcome planter, something like the red one in the first picture, mine is a little smaller though, and I made a rustic Texas flag from pickets too! Thanks for sharing these picket projects! Pinning!

  7. This is perfect! I'm about to make a picket fence to hang on my wall many ideas here.

  8. Love your ideas, but when I cut old pickets the cut wood looks way newer and much lighter in color. Any ideas?

    1. Maybe try a wood stain or paint wash or pickle (thinly watered down paint)
