Fun Find, Metal Architectural Sconces




DH and I went for a drive on Sunday, and just happened upon one of my favorite antique shops, just as they opened. I love this place because they always have lots of architectural stuff. It's usually priced so that I can only buy for myself and not for resale.

When I found these wonderful metal architectural pieces I just had to get a couple

They would be great window boxes just as they are. You see the tops are open.
After examining them at home I realized that they come apart with just a little encouragement.


So now I have 6 of these corbel or sconces. I'm keeping 2 of them for myself of course.


They now flank each side of my hutch

These are fun as you could also add a piece of wood to the top and it becomes a small shelf.


For now I'm going to leave them open at the top for dried flowers.

My brother gave me some pieces like these years ago and I have been trying to figure out what to do with them- now I know!! Thanks!

Margo - I sure like those on the wall on either side of your hutch. Speaking of which - the whole wall looks really great - I like how you've got all your junk arranged there.
