White picket pallet fence: Hometalk member Allison House turned ordinary pallets into fence pickets (white, natch).  It's a down-home DIY take on a classic style.

An arbor elevates a white picket fence: A Saint Joseph, Missouri contractor transformed an ordinary white picket fence to an extraordinary white picket fence with the addition of a seriously substantial arbor.

Add a bold gate in a contrasting color: A funky gate in a bold, contrasting color adds personality to a white picket fence. Hire a pro painter or do it yourself! 

Turm a white picket fence into a potting bench: Blogger Homeroad upped the ante when it comes to white picket fence whimsy by building a white picket fence potting bench.

Harness the power of flowers: Hydrangeas peek out from inside Miss Flibbertygibbet's fence. The bright colors or thickly planted flowers make even the most prim and proper white picket fence look romantic and fun.
