Ann wanted to replace the wood railings with iron; however not knowing what design she wanted, we sat down with her and picked one out. The design she was looking for was something simple, but not plain. I think this little pattern is a great choice. The color we went with is black bronze II. It gives it a rustic look, but also has some bronze in it. The pickets inside the railing is 5/8″ which makes these railings weigh close to 175 pounds each.
