A really old architectural shop that was filled from floor to ceiling with an eclectic mix of candelabras, urns, statues, hardware, and all sorts of architectural goodies...
... a visual feast to thwart my cravings for all things rusty and crusty.
I’ve been told on occasion that some of the things in my home look like they have been “just dug up from the earth.” Lol! I love this!
But really, who could resist rummaging through a giant pile of architectural material that has patina, chipped paint and a thick layer of dirt?
Relax - this is why handy wipes were invented.
But... others see beauty and are inspired by these treasures and the potential to make them into useful items once again.
Take for instance these Corinthian capitals - for a mere $12 grand, I could purchase one, flip it over, add a glass top, and make it my dining table – gorgeous!
Just look at the beautiful muted colors on these spindles.
So... if any of the stuff in my home looks like it’s been recently excavated during an architectural dig, I’m okay with it. You can chisel that in stone.
