FINALLY! hooray!

My husband is brilliant and wonderful.  He made this awesome bed frame for our son when our son was moving into a "big boy" bed. PJ really enjoyed it!  But when it came time to move we couldn't get the frame apart and had to saw it apart with no way to fix it again.  We've kept a couple of the pieces because they were so beautiful.  Moving into the house we live in now we've started gardening again. And the idea came to me to use the headboard and the footboard as gates for our garden.  4 years later......

The Main Gate to the Garden.
We'll use the part that looks like a ladder to grow sweetpeas on or something.

The gate to the compost pile.

So I'm really glad and they turned out to be lovely gates!
