A new love

I never thought I'd say I found my new love online...well sortof.  It was actually a listing on Craigslist for an antique backplate - like off of a buffet or sideboard.  Bad news - it was in Greenville, TX which is about an hour-and-a-half away.  Good news - it was at a store so I was able to call and give my credit card number to hold it.  Sweet!  I did not take a "before" picture but it was so sad - dirty, dry and dull.  I just knew it could be made beautiful again and honestly, it turned out better than I expected.

I hung it in our master bathroom - above the double doors that lead to our closet.

Here is a zoomed out shot so you can see how it complements the antique frame that hangs above our garden tub.

Another new-old treasure...love it!

I really like it. Great idea to hang it here, and how nice that it mirrors the other one.

I love that piece! I am a sucker for any architectural-y looking wood.
