This is another garden gate that was going to be thrown away, I have it in my entry to my porch. I drape pine garland at Christmas with lights, fall leaves garland in the Fall with vintage pumpkin lights, it's fun to change with the seasons!

Good save and welcome to the JunkMarket!

Cheers to you!

It's taken over the gate and covered it pretty well. It's a good thing I like it there because I don't think I'd ever be able to get it free from all the ivy now! Great job!

Grab them when you can!!
