New Secret Garden Arbor...

My new arbor is almost done... I love it! My husband is amazing ...

Now all I have to do is find the hinges and latch I like!!! Easier said than done!

About month ago we were talking about the warn out arbor in my Secret Garden. It needed replaced, but I couldn't find anything I liked. Tom said show me what you want, I went to the computer and showed him about 5 different ones I liked and what I liked about each of them. Next thing I knew he had one drawn up. It was like magic. Everything I wanted in an arbor. I used my money I won in the cooking contests and away we went. Here's Tom holding the gate in place so I can see what it is going to look like done. He knows I'm a visual person. The sides have the same diamond shape on them too...

I want wrought iron for the hinges and latch, I just have to find some, the arbor is so beautiful I just don't want to just put anything on it. Well I better hit the Internet, come back in a few days and see what I've found!!!

Have a Good One,
Lynn
