Redwood Side Garden Gate

My husband has been quite busy lately building projects for our house. 

 My hubby built a beautiful garden side gate for our yard.
He had some left-over lattice, so he thought of a design using it.  I love how it looks.
We stained it a redwood color and added some Kokopelli's, which means Gods of music and rebirth.

Being the Supervisor, I always tell him to take it up a notch!
I think adding the arbor top piece makes a statement.
We bought some stain and black gate hardware.
He thought of adding the  
We happened to have two sets already of these music Gods on our back gate.  Now, he wants to build another gate for the back.

Below is our front entrance gate.  We are thinking of getting a solid wood arched gate.

In case you missed the Elegant Box, which can be found here
Thank you Kathy from Creative Home Expressions and Lisa Lynn @ The Self Sufficient Homemaker for featuring my Elegant box this week.

The kitchen is still waiting for the final layout design.
We should have it wrapped it up this week and proceed.
I am ready to make this happen.
I am sharing this picture of the Barley Twist.

This picture below shows the Barley twist again.  I wish our ceilings were this high.
These photos are not my kitchen, just pictures of things I like. 

I do like this Barley twist for the range pop-out and pull-out spice racks on each side. I wouldn't want all of the Barley twists on the upper cabinets.  I think it's too much. Probably flutes and decorative pieces.  The crown moulding will go in and out.
I just found out our dishwasher  does take an appliance panel, so all of our appliances, except the Wolf gas range will have cabinets panels.

I am feeling better each day.  Such a relief to not see any doctors for awhile.  I do want to proceed with the thyroid cancer, so I can enjoy the holidays and start the new year with a clean bill of health.

  6. Hi Linda! I'm so thrilled to hear you're feeling better - you're still in my prayers. Now that gate is amazing! Your hubby is so very talented. It's gorgeous and I love the little metal pieces and the top! Oh, that just finishes it up so nicely. Your front gate is pretty too and I think I see a little Schnauzer peeping through and Schnauzer metal pieces on the gates? I love it!
    Take care and you're always a sweetie,

  14. I LOVE YOUR HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Linda, that gate is fabulous! Aren't are husbands just the best to build us things? For me, it all started with my father building me a playhouse, but I'm talking about stucco and real roofing....then my husband has built shutters, gates, benches, overhangs for the doors....our men are great.

    The hood over your stove, the flooring, EVERYTHING is lush and perfect. I hope you are happy with the results! And we are thrilled that you are feeling better my dear. HUGS and ENJOY YOUR DAY! Anita
