Garden Gate Wall Art - Beach Cottage Decor
Another Craig's List find for our beach cottage, I got this garden gate and didn't know exactly what I was going to do with it.  It sat in the garage for awhile until we furnished most of the beach cottage and the perfect spot revealed itself.

This bedroom needed a rustic accent.  I say this because every space in our beach cottage had a rustic element (barn wood, aged copper, old boat oars, driftwood, antiques accessories, etc...)  The gate was an item I had not placed yet.  It is about 25 years old (it has the year 1989 carved into to the top of it).  Someone took great care in putting it together, and I like that it is an unexpected piece of art on a wall.

This is the yellow bedroom in our cottage.  I'm still on the fence about the yellow quilt, but I like this bedroom so much more with the wooden gate on the wall.  It's a great focal point and works with the other neutrals in the room to help the quilt be less "in-your-face" yellow.  I'm generally a neutral and earth-tones kind of girl, so this bright color thing in decorating is new for me.
