My cottage is waiting patiently for it's paint job, which has now been pushed back to the first week in October (I am praying for good weather for my painter-guys.) and in the last week I got my picket fence installed.
Since so many of the houses in my neighborhood have picket fences, or hedges around them, I wanted to do a picket fence that was different than the rest. I chose to use the lap eared fence boards left over from the privacy fence, and do a high-low look.
(Remember my cottage without the picket fence?)
Of course, having the picket fence painted will add further instant gratification, but for now, the definition and charm it adds to my cottage is beyond anything I could have possibly imagined.
Can you see the improvement?
Can you envision it painted a crisp white?
With flowers and shrubs planted in front of it?
And a clever sign hanging on the gate?
And it is a thing of beauty.
