Chippy White Gates

Hey my friends!
I’ve got new vintage finds to share!
I’m sure that you’ve all been there before.
You find something at the antique mall that makes your heart skip a beat.
Well, needless to say, I was so excited!
Mr. Buckets of Burlap said
“Why did you buy those old ugly gates?”
My reply was, “To hang on the wall of course.”
And so, once again, my handy man did the job,
of hanging something that does not really belong on the wall,
They are old, rusty, and chippy, I know.
But I just could. not. help. myself.
And boy, they were a great bargain 🙂
And, I think they fill up the space nicely, don’t you?
And, you know what?
I think Mr. Buckets of Burlap likes it, too 🙂
I think, I’m finally done with this dining room.
(did I just say that outloud?)
Until I find that perfect piece of junk fine art to go on another wall 🙂
Have you found something wonderful lately?
I’m joining Tuesdays Treasures with Kristin 
White Wednesday with Kathleen
The Good Life Wednesday with Sarah.
Thanks so much for hosting, ladies!
And thanks to all of you for visiting me today,
I appreciate you all 🙂

    What a gorgeous find!!! I love them and I do understand! I have a white door story that is similiar. My hubby looks at me strangely once in awhile, but he always is ready to help and has indulged me more than once in hanging up things that he wonders about. ha ha!!

  20. Yes, you really hit the jackpot with the gates! I love the unique way you have hung them on your wall…awesome look! My hubby often says the same thing…I simply respond "after all these years, don't you know you can trust me?".

  26. I know that feeling! I just found some shutters!
    I love those gates!!!
    I have gates all over my yard! In the winter I hang wreaths, or ice skates and in the summer I hang flowers from them.

  27. Love your dining room and the gates are inspired!

    Gotta love a guy that questions them but still hangs them for you anyway! They look fabulous, as does the rest of the room, so pretty. Theresa xoxo

  33. It's Just Me says:

    I LOVE em' Becky … I think almost all men go to the same school because The Hubby asks me the same type question, lol.

  34. CoopDeVilla says:

    What a find! When I saw them, I like so many thought angel wings. Simply divine.

  35. Tammy says:

    A great find and a great way to display it! Your room is beautiful…magazine worthy! You've really done a great great job!
    Tammy 🙂

  36. Kelly Ash says:

    As a fellow flea marketer, gardener and vintage treasure seeker I am in love with your gates!

    Last summer I found this amazing hurricane shutter (that my husband thinks has seen better days – but I simply insist it is shabby chic!). I am still loving them!

    So glad you found something so beautiful!


    PS I absolutely adore your blog – and your photographs! Everything is so pretty!

  37. Hi Becky, what a wonderful find, and a clever way to display them. Your dining room looks amazing, and so much space! And Yes, I found something cool this week too, and posted about it, stopping by from Sarah's to say have a Wonderful Wednesday, xoxo tami

  38. Beautiful dining room – LOVE the gates…men just don't "get" it sometimes. Glad Mr. Buckets is coming around – still working on mine. Happy White Wednesday – Tanya

  39. Marie says:

    OMIGOSH! I love it!!! They are perfect on your wall, in your perfect dining room, which I totally love! Congratulations on these awesome finds!

  40. Brenda Kula says:

    Oh, how I love this room of yours! I think they give definition and a bit more character (as though you needed it) to this most lovely of rooms.

  41. The gates fill the space perfectly … great eye and very creative!!


  42. not sure how I missed a couple of your posts ~ can I just say Oh My Loveliness of White Gates…. Love it. You have a beautiful home.

  43. Beautiful addition to an already beautiful room!!! ~~Sherry~~

  44. Hi Becky, you know what are you sure those aren't the sides to a wooden awning? I had some very similar once and would have never thought to do that. Either way they are fabulous, just as your whole house is. What a great eye you have. Are you not in any shops or did I miss that. I'd love to sometime meet up with you in Canton, but isn't Canton next weekend or did I get my dates wrong. We're going on Thursday. So…when did you say you could come and decorate my house 🙂 ? Have a great weekend, T

  45. They look like pieces from an old wooden awning! I like them because they look like angel wings the way you have them displayed.

    I wish that you could like people's comments, because I totally agree that these look like angel wings. That is what I was thinking as I was reading this post.

  47. alyson says:

    I think you should turn them around and insinuate angel wings too, or give them to me and let me do it. I have been on the hunt for wooden angel wings for a while. Now I can look for fences too. Love your blog. Yippiegirl
