I have wanted an arbor for years. I knew just where I would put it if I ever got one. I recently spied one in the garden center near my home with a hefty price tag on it.. sigh... But today, there she was, in all her glory of chippy paint (probably lead) and a nice patina to boot. I love it more than the one at the garden center.
I think she is a real beauty, rust, missing finials and all.
The guy selling it to me was like "you can paint it and make it real purty". Are you kidding, I love the paint on it.
I would really love to know where it came from. I think the next time I get out to the flea market, I will ask him.
She is not sitting where she will end up and I think one panel is on backwards, but we wanted to see how she would look like in the yard. I have to admit, it is so much prettier in my yard than it was at the flea market. What a great hubby to have!
