Tuesday’s Find…the patina is the thing

This deceptively simple double garden gate  from the 1940s has high impact.  The striking blue patina and subtle metal rail detail takes something that could be sooooo ho-hum and makes it special.  The original from English Country Antiques in Bridgehampton, NY could be easily interpreted or replicated.  Sometimes it’s not about the object, it’s about the idea.

    This is a great idea – in general and in particular. I wish I had a good gate for my chicken wire fenced vegetable garden!

    Wouldn’t it look fantastic in the snow this winter? To me that would be a reason alone to get it!–s
