Friday’s Fences – Murfreesboro, NC

Last week, Motor Man and I went to a race in North Carolina. En route, we traveled through the little town of Murfreesboro, where I spotted this old fence.

A close-up of the gate with the house in the background.

The house seems to be in better condition than the fence, although there IS something to be said for shabby-chic.

Linking up to Friday’s Fences.

  4. I love that fence – shabby chic and all – almost looks like a doll house mansion! But I would hate to have to paint that fence!

  5. Absolutely inspiring. I love how it matches the house. They don’t make ’em like they used to!

  6. Wow….talk about a fence (and house) with a lot of personality! I do agree though that it would be a pain in the neck to paint them…..especially that amazing fence.

    A very different type of fence. Very nice.

  25. My husband’s family used to have a peanut farm in Murfreesboro and we had a lot of friends there. It was definitely a neat town. Your fence takes me back…..

  26. That’s a fantastic little fence. I love old houses like this with character. I hope they’ll recondition it, its got to be one of a kind. Looks like a cute house back there too.
