I’ve been photographing cottages in Lake Worth, Florida for an upcoming coffee table book and was inspired by one cottage owner who used a door as an entrance way into the garden. It was time to upgrade our clunky garden gate when it became impossible to open easily, so, we grabbed a door that we found discarded, added paint that we had left over from another project and used hardware we already had. Then, I added one of my signature fern photos (click here for more of my botanicals) to the bottom panels to give it a one-of-a-kind look. We are happy with the results and happy that we did not have to buy anything to do this project!
We might add a window as a transom if we can find one for free. Otherwise, we have some old copper pipes that would make a cool wind chime dangling from the top beams.
