Here are the pictures of those architectural salvage pieces I told you about a few days ago…
I was told they are side pieces of an old ornate piano or organ.
(Each side is missing a screw from each of those pieces that are hanging down.)
Dark stained oak, curvy and delightful lines and LOTS of potential!
So far, not thinking I am completely insane for dragging them home …
so that’s good!
I am not 100% sure-
but thinking of putting them atop the mantle and putting a mirror in between or something along those lines.
Or maybe use them as shutters?
I showed pictures of them upside down as well as it kind of changes the look a bit.
I would like to lighten them up with some shabby paint.
They are HEAVY and substantial and measure aprox. 4′ tall and 2.5′ wide.
Anybody have any ideas ?
Also, per your requests, here are the other finds-
the candelabras –
on the mantle.
I haven’t changed the decor for fall yet
(you guys keep inspiring me with all your fall updates!)
& I just had a few candles put in to show you how it looks.
A couple of the arms were broken when I bought them –
(they fell over in the bin the dealer was carrying them in on his way to the flea market)
so I got a better deal on them. 🙂
I was able to repair them using a ‘weld’ product from the hardware store.
(I noticed while taking this picture that I haven’t touched up the paint yet…
another thing on the to-do list!)
I think they are Art Nouveau?
If anyone knows anything about them, please share!
