Great find...Old Masonic Columns!

The little town that my son's lives in Kansas closed down the Masonic Hall. He got the four columns (2 matching sets) complete with globes and gave them to me! Here is what I did with them along with the before picture.
I put these globes on the fireplace mantel.
Another view of the globes on the fireplace mantel.
This vintage globe has some cool graphics.
I painted the columns white and distressed them a bit.
Before, these are the original two sets of columns from the Masonic Hall.
I took of the masonic symbols since they looked primitive. Painted them distressed white and added the black and white checkerboard up top for whimsy. I placed these in the doorway between the foyer and study. Hubby will add a bit to the bases to raise them up to meet the doorway molding.
A close up of the black and white check.
This set had the masonic symbols left on since they were very detailed and when painted all white, they don't stand out. This set was placed in the media room/man cave on each side of the fireplace.
These globes are so cool and the patina was fantastic so I left them original.
This original globe has moon and stars with a couple of shooting stars painted on it.
