This past fall we finally replaced our rickety old picket fence with a new one. While I held a certain endearment for our “charming” fence, a lot of the pickets were rotting and we simply couldn’t let it go any longer. I’ve always loved a picket fence and am happy to share some quaint picket fence ideas with you.
