- Wedding: December 2010
When we first moved into our place, I was stuck with the ugliest fireplace I’d ever seen. Think: Black hole in the wall. No marble, no mantel, no nothing! As the months passed, I tried my hand at some budget-conscious home improvements and took a few trips to the big H. Depot. Here is an ‘after’ photo (taken in Oct. hence the decor!). But, as I sit in a couch across form my fireplace for hours on end, I can’t help but think it’s missing “something”. What’s that something? ANTIQUE ANDIRONS! As some of you may know, I am an avid antique-shopper and in my travels I have come across some pretty awesome andirons! Here are some of the more unique ones (Anchors, gladiators, labradors, cats, chinese-y dogs, and little naked children (who I’m going to assume are wingless cherubs?) Anyways, I’ve seen these babies priced anywhere from $50-$2,000! Anyone else have a cool set of andirons?? Please, tell me somebody does….
