Iron Gate Wall Decor and Vintage Garden Items

My sunroom, as a sunroom would, gets a great amount of sunlight throughout the day.

Because of this, I have to be careful on what I place on the walls.

Hanging items that I do not have to worry about fading, such as mirrors, plates,

and tole trays seem to be the best solution for this room.

This iron gate was originally in the guest room and I replaced it with a Monet print.

It patiently sat in the attic until I found a new home for it.

This area originally displayed 4 vintage tole trays.

I used one of them to place beneath the gate as it fit so well in the space.

Not to mention the great color it added.

There is still a bit of a garden theme going on in this room . . .

A tole watering can sits on top of an indoor gardening book with a basket

of vintage garden tools in the background.

Baby it’s cold outside, but I can feel a bit of Spring in this room!

I found some of my vintage garden tools years ago and always loved the ones that have the original

price stamped on them . . . 79 cents . . . a real bargain.

A faux boxwood wreath was added to the iron gate to add more texture and dimension.

I am happy with this corner of the sunroom that is helping to chase away the winter blahs!!!

What do you do to chase away the winter blues in your home? As for me, I am headed to Trader Joe’s

to buy some fresh flowers. 🙂

  6. Shirley, that looks just great! I’m like you, must watch the sun fading things, and my ceiling is all windows – doubly hard, because it acts as solar power, and can do some serious damage. I’m like-minded in the types of things I choose. Yours look nice and vivid! Have a great week.

    Seeing this just makes me more anxious to be able to get up out of this bed and get back to normal around here. Doesn’t look like that will be happening any time soon, though. Weeks of recuperation still ahead with limited movement. Ugh! You will just have to keep decorating enough to satisfy the TWO of us!

  20. I am drawn to vintage trays and have several. The problem is I don’t know what to do with them as they really don’t fit my house. Guess I should quit looking at them so there will be no temptation.

    I love it Shirley. It does remind me the nice weather to come. Enjoy!

  22. I love the layered look of the wreath hanging over the garden gate. That’s perfect for a sunroom too.

  23. So pretty, Shirley. I love the wreath on the gate, and of course I love the lavender in the sweet little bird feeder. I’m so glad we’re having warmer weather this week!

  25. This looks very cheerful! Love the gate with the wreath and the black floral pieces! I would think just being in this room on sunny days should make you feel good! I keep moving things around to keep busy and try to ignore the winter blahs. When all else fails it’s time for some retail therapy!

  26. Mary George says

    Beautiful arrangement! Love the iron gate with the wreath. What did you use to hang the iron gate on the wall?

  27. I had a toile tray that was very similar to yours, but I will readily admit you have put yours to much better use than I ever did. It looks perfect in your sun room, as does your other treasures.

    I know it was cold in Georgia last week, but I heard it warmed up the last three or four days, no? As for what I do to chase away the winter doldrums, well, I head south! 😉

  30. I love anything garden themed and your sunroom is just wonderful! I too love vintage garden tools and always look for them at thrifts and antique stores. Don’t think any of mine have a price. That is added fun! I have had that same bird piece for years and still love it.

  31. Gate Love Shirley! You know I have case of tole and watering can envy too! I miss Trader Joe’s not being near by since we’ve moved to the lake, pick up some flowers for me 🙂
