Wonderful find! Very old chippy fireplace front..so excited!
We are in process of redoing a 1970's cozy brick home with great bones :) Have painted , new floor, etc This is in the "dining room" , I use that term loosely lol. Anyway, everything on this mantle, which I found for $15 whoo hoo has a history and the plates on the wall are some of mine over 20years old, the other plates were my mothers and grandmothers, the hand knitted jacket on the wall was mine as an infant , old aprons of my gmothers , my blanket when baptized , old family Bible, etc. This is not the permanent home, I would like to use this as the headboard in our guest bedroom but will keep it here for a bit .
