Acorn Cottage {Custom Gate}

Jorge and Mario were back to the Acorn Cottage on Saturday to construct the custom gate for the side of the house. Ever since the privacy fence was installed in early summer, I wanted a custom gate to blend with the "new" front of the house. Jorge and Mario took my design thoughts and created a custom gate which blends perfectly into the yard. The addition of a medallion in the center gives the gate some character.

Mario will be back this week to give the gate a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore's Swiss coffee. It is covered in primer right now. The medallion will get a coat of aged copper paint to blend in with the copper of the awning, gas lamp fixture, and mailbox. A handle will also be added.

I am such a fan of custom additions which give the Acorn Cottage its own unique features.

Custom gate, y'all!


  1. Good morning, Ron! The custom gate looks great! Can't wait to see it painted and the medallion painted with the aged copper paint. One day, I'm going to come to NOLA to see the Acorn Cottage in person! Have a great day! xoxo

  2. Perfect! Great idea and finishes the front off nicely! As they say - it’s in the details!

    1. And I love the details.... I kind of obsess about them. LOL!

  3. Hi Ron,
    Love it and will love it even more with the paint and copper added to the piece. This is looking so great with all you have done to the front of the house. Happy New Week.
