Brayton Homestead Gates

So excited I had to share with you a sketch I made for gates in the front of my house. Wanted to add gates to the granite columns of the stone wall openings for the driveway. Originally, the gates were made of iron. As I do not have the them, and I prefer a more rustic look, I designed them to be made of wood. I saw them in the progress of being made today, so excited...
