Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to relax with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation *smile* Today on the blog, we are chatting about how I gussied up the fireplace in the parlor with a touch of old silver.
I know I have told y’all this before–but I fell in love with Hathorn Hall the first time I saw it. The porch, the parlor, the windows…it was lovely and filled with character and possibilities! And the parlor…I love the parlor *smile*
The fireplace in the parlor is my favorite. I love the rich wood and the details. I am pretty sure that it once had a mirror–but it has long been gone…at first, I thought I would just have mirror cut to fit…but that seemed too new…too easy…then I pondered finding an old mirror to cut down to fit…mirrored tiles…decorative tiles…just paint it to match the walls…so many good ideas, but none of them really seemed right…
But then…I found a box of old silverplate goblets and candlesticks at the Tree Streets community garage sale. It was a score, and I knew exactly where some of them were going *smile*
Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we chatted about using old silver goblets for a 1920 fireplace mirror substitute. Now while I go work on a few projects, y’all enjoy the fall foliage sneak peeks *smile*
