Architectural elements make my heart sing!!! I love to add a little bit of old chippy pieces of old homes in my house! They have a history and a beauty all their own. So when I saw this great architectural piece on a recent antiquing trip I could not grab it up quick enough. I knew that it would look great above an old dresser I painted to look sleek and a little modern. LOVE the juxtaposition of smooth and chippy paint…. vintage and modern pieces living together. So much interest…
The top molding was wide enough to use as a little shelf. Yea!
The story of this piece is written on the back of it. It came from a historic home that was demolished in Harrisburg, Pa, our state capitol. I love the thought of having a little piece of history… that a piece of crown molding with great dentil work from an historic home lives on here at StoneGable!
This piece was very very inexpensive. Much less than any new shelf I could get! Don’t you love getting a great bargain!
I’ll be sharing the guest room reveal later this week! Bobby and I painted it… again!!!! This room was my son Christopher’s room. When he married Abigail I began to make it over because she loves chippy furniture and etsy-style furnishings.
This little shelf fits right in with the style she loves so much!
Think about bringing a little piece of vintage architecture into your decor. It adds lots of texture and warmth!
