But since we’re not quite to the out-like-a-lamb days of March and the lion’s breath is still adding a fearful nip to the air, you might want to think about bringing a touch of the garden inside your house to help with the spring fever until that frosty lion’s been defrosted by those April showers that are right around the corner.

Wrought iron garden accessories aren’t just for the garden though. With the right garden accessories and a little bit of imagination you can turn functional wrought garden accessories into rustic works of art for a garden-themed room perfect for ushering in spring, I hear they look fantastic with some high-quality Garden Fencing. This theme works especially well in sunrooms, family rooms, and kitchens, but the true garden lover could adapt it for any room of her choice. Start by transforming an interesting trellis into art simply by hanging it on a wall. This can easily serve as a focal point that sets the theme for your room. Other possible focal points include an eye catching wrought iron house plaque, or a monogram made from wrought iron outdoor/indoor letters. Another way to set the theme is to use picket fencing along a portion of your wall.
You can create a unique arrangement of wrought iron garden stakes to display in a large vase, a watering can or a flower pot. These can stand alone or can be mixed with foliage depending on the look of your room. Wrought iron weather vanes and sundials also make great accent pieces. Decorative wrought iron hooks are perfect to hang house plants from, or with some ingenuity can be adapted to create coat and hat racks. Side mounted mailboxes can be arranged to decorate walls and a collection can add not only interest, but can also be used for extra organizational space.
To create a garden themed piece of furniture that will make a truly personal statement transform a wrought iron fire bowl into a coffee table by topping it with glass. Combine this with a porch swing hung indoors, and you will be able to enjoy the atmosphere of your spring garden all year. So enjoy a taste of the outdoors year round in a room personalized by your creative wrought iron garden accessory touches. My friend told me that he coupled his garden theme with some garden furniture from www.kedel.co.uk to complete his tasteful combination similar to what was previously discussed.
