I think this might be the year! We might actually replace our deteriorating rustic picket fence with a newer version. I keep trying to tell myself that our fence is shabby chic style but now that we’ve painted the exterior of our home, the fence just looks more worn and run-down. So I’m looking at inspirational photos for picket fence ideas before finally committing to something.
How adorable is this yellow picket fence with its little gate? The house behind it is equally charming! I think I’m ready to move in and call this place my home!
I’d like to have an arch over the gate like this home when we replace our fencing. Wouldn’t it look pretty with climbing roses or wisteria winding its way over the top?
Rounded pickets wrap around this gorgeous seaside home! The humble picket fence doesn’t look out of place in front of this stately house.
This house has several elements that says “Americana” … from the large front porch to the waving flag to the charming picket fence. Beautiful home!
A picket fence doesn’t have to be painted. You can leave it unfinished to weather and gray.
Another charming home complete with a picket fence and rambling roses!
Love this low-slung home with its spacious porch and curb appeal, all encircled with a charming fence.
Enclose a garden area with a fence, and keep the gate closed with a ball and chain!

Garden gates get a special touch with black stars.
I like houses that have a fence out front. I’m not sure if this would look good with our house because our front yard is so small, but I’d really like to try it.
The pickets on this fence are placed fairly close together. The little flowering trees behind the fence are a quaint touch. I love this house!
And finally, a bare picket fence surrounding the front yard of a classic Cape Cod home. I guess my next step is to call a fencing guy or two and get some estimates.
Here’s what my fence currently looks like, with its garden banner. You can see that the pickets are very worn. Some of the pickets are starting to split so it’s time for the “shabby chic” look to go!
Do you prefer a painted fence or one that has a natural look?
