I love a little fireplace tucked into a corner of a room.
This antique cast iron fireplace surround was found along with a
whole room full of antique Swedish furniture.
There was an armoire, desk, vanity, nightstand , 2 side chairs
and gorgeous bed frame along with this fireplace
$200 on craigslist last year.
Yeah, I thought it was a typo too.
I have seen little dainty fireplaces in beautiful rooms in many magazines and books.
I loved the instant charm that leaning a fireplace against the wall brings.
This surround is very, very heavy…
but very petite at the same time.
I am thinking a little monogram in that center oval area!
It also came with a mantel mirror- which I am not using on it.
(the mirror is getting a makeover as we speak! )
I just love all the details this piece has.
It’s a keeper for sure.
For now, it’s in the quirky sitting area outside my bedroom.
It has built in bookcases filled with design books,
a French armoire,a crystal chandelier, a spot to sit…
and also quirks galore.
That’s what you get with all the charm of an old cottage…
quirks are part of the package.
I brought a couple of baskets of dried hydrangeas
as well as a super chippy~ chippy old framed chalkboard
Loving the new white color on it…
and I am thinking about placing this little fireplace in the kitchen
if I can work the spot right…
See you this afternoon for Feathered Nest Friday!
