Find the Finial..........

It is fun to be able to buy finials to finish off the tops of fences.  It is a classy thing. I was out looking for photos that had minimal to zero white.  This green looks good to me. The rails are my grape arbor. It is nice to see through the end of my fenced-in yard. I have woven wire at the bottom to keep two dogs in the yard.

Wood finials are a good way to top off my stairs also. I had a hard time deciding to buy this on the one with a ball on the top of it.

Another view with a to do item showing. Cracked because of the screw that was twisted into the wood. I can think of more finials that I have inside the house but I think they will make a photo a day viewing someday.

A light snow for us today, as our Southern and Eastern friends get blasted.  I hope everyone stays safe and warm.  Thanks for stopping by......

Loved your finials. We tend to forget that one item can impart a finished look.

It's a very good thing.

Luckily we've only been blasted with rain this time in Atlanta! Keep warm!

I tend to buy old finials and display them as bookends etc.
i like yours, topping off the fence posts, it surely does bring a finished look to the whole fence.
Classy !

Great finials. I think I prefer simple, solid ones like this over the more ornate. I think I could do a blog on just things like finials, corbels, sconces and other architectural details.
