      Toni | smallhomesoul.com - I love everything about this transformation! I never would have thought about hanging a gate on my wall but this looks wonderful and the color you blended is perfect. I have an old mirror in a frame like yours, I need to dig it out and give it some distressing and hang it up.ReplyCancel

      • April 22, 2016 - 5:46 PM

        Debbie - Thanks Toni! I love repurposing old found objects and just things we have in storage too. I’m glad you like the color of the gate. Heirloom Traditions is creating this in a custom color for me. It will be available in few weeks. I will announce it on the blog. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyCancel

Will browse once more !! Thanks on your helpful content.ReplyCancel
