Spring Fern Mantlescape

6,024 Views
I styled my faux mantel. . .well real mantel, no fireplace. . .for Spring. I hung an antique stained glass window salvaged from a local church flanked by two reproduction French wall sconces then decked the mantle with a Frenchy vintage clock and loads of terracotta pots and ferns. I tucked in a few metal flower frogs for good measure!

    How cool. How did you get your hands on the church's stained glass?

    An antique picker friend of mine spotted them at one of our favorite haunts--this one and the smaller teal-blue ones in my living room. I okay'd the purchase sight unseen and have yet to regret it! They are from a church in Hanover. I also purchased an altar about a year later from the same shop--Class and Trash on Route One in Richmond, VA. I believe it came from the same church as the stained glass.

    I'll bet it was from an old Baptist church.........looking at the stained glass. I have an old, antique Baptist church stained glass window, which, when purchased had several broken and cracked pieces. I ran it over to my favorite stained glass company for repair. Of course they couldn't match the antique glass; so I had them shift larger broken pieces into the smaller areas to preserve as much of the antique glass as possible, then added a rose-colored glass to those areas left open. It sits in my living room corner with a florescent light behind it, offering beautiful light at night.

    Love the natural rawness of it with the old frogs and unpainted clay pots. Well done Mikey F, well done!
