Hi everyone, well the title of this post says it all...I am always thinking outside the box so to speak, and this time is no different. I found a few old, wooden, heavy...very heavy cattle gates. Lets just say, I have a hard time just sliding them across the floor to work on them. My husband has to carry them in the basement for me. I have 3 to do, this one is the first of them to be finished. I already have people wanting them from the pictures I posted on facebook. Each one is a different size, this one being the smallest. And each one has different metal hardware, this one is the only one with an old chain still attached.
While I was working on it, I kept thinking..."are you crazy"....."why would you try to wrestle with these things"...but after I got it done, I sat back and said "damn that came out nice"...well in my opinion anyway. Everything is not for everyone...but this makes an awesome porch or yard decoration for the upcoming holidays. It is about 4 feet wide, and 3 feet high, and the thickness of the layers of wood is about 6 inches. But I wanted you all to see it before it is gone. I am getting better about taking pictures of my creations. Hope you all like it, but for now I am back to work preparing for a big show that is coming up. Have a wonderful day.
From my house to yours:
