My home is filled with architectural antiques. I am fascinated with these items that once functioned as "something" in homes & buildings, now long forgotten, torn down, or God forbid "renovated". Their stories never to be told, but to leave me wondering "where did this come from?"; "where did this piece fit into the scheme of the decor?"; what function did this have? So today, I will share my collection & hope that it inspires you too.
Don't you love these old floor grates?
This beauty once was the focal point for a coal burning fireplace. Now it serves as a screen for our fireplace in the great room.
I think this was a piece of an old fence possibly from Louisiana!
