When driving around in older neighborhoods, take a glance at the balconies on the early 1900's houses.
The railings around the porches have the most wonderful palings or slats.
These pieces of history are my favorite architectural finds.
They are usually hand-crafted so there are slight differences in each.
I did find some while out shopping with Olive back in January. (Primitives)
This group was perfectly shabby and chippy with different whites and grays.
But also were incredibly dirty!
Time for Fabulosa and a scrubby sponge and a wire brush!
What a difference a good scrubbing makes!
Yes, they are missing a few pieces, but they are over 100 years old.
You would be missing pieces, too.
All basking in the sun.
Now a decision.
I plan to keep just ONE.
Yes, just ONE!
After running back and forth outside and inside the house, I finally made a decision.
This one was the ONE.
I like the shape and the shabby love vibes it was sending me.
The fancy, clean sisters went to the market.
This little paling stayed home.
