|Garden gate waiting to be painted|
I was torn between barn red, orange/terracotta or blue. In the end I chose blue because it's a color I don't have in my garden. I already have tons of red, orange and terracotta. I wanted this gate to stand out and not blend in with the rest of the yard.
|Painted garden gate|
I took the advice of some of my Facebook followers and used stain rather than paint, but the colors were more limited. There were only two blues, so it was either this or light blue. I wish it was a brighter blue, but when the sun shines on it, it looks brilliant. I'm happy with it.

|Accent pots filled with flowers|
I found these three pots and filled them with flowers in complimentary colors.
Don't they look awesome?
Plus I have tons of stain left, and I plan to paint a few other things for accent pieces.
(Look out tomato cages, I have my eye on you...)
Thank you to everyone who made suggestions on how to give my garden gate new life! It was tons of fun to read all of the comments, some of you had me laughing!
So, what do you think?
