Vintage Gates -14 Ways To Get Creative

By Lisa VanWilliams

Check out what can be done with these old gates to bring that rustic charm into your home. You can look for these at flea markets, Habitat For Humanity ReStores, or side of the road tag sales, but you never know where one might pop up on your travels. When I look at these I get so many ideas that can be done with them such as:

  • being used as a headboard
  • make an indoor window look larger by adding these as shutters
  • create some character and allure on a blank wall
  • create a focal point on a large wall
  • use them to decorate in a garden, patio, or porch
  • create a fake door to no where
  • hang them over a mantel 
  • make a coat rack/bench
  • use it as a pantry door or make a mini spice cabinet

If you like the look of these but you don't want to go find your own, you can always order them online! We found these great sets at: http://www.grandinroad.com/  
They have a couple different styles and they range in price anywhere from $129-$139
