My shabby "new" fireplace! :-)

On Tuesday, Nathanael and I went on a little trip to Mossvale in the Southern Highlands with our friends, Dan and Melissa. We went shopping, of course. Haha There are so many cute shops in Mossvale. I was so excited whe I spotted this beautiful fireplace surround and mantel piece in an antique shop. I was told that it is circa 1910-20.
Here is the firplace in our formal living room. Doesn't it look cozy? The owner of the antique shop was kind enough to deliver it for free. :-)
I'm not sure I will leave the fireplace in this room yet. It may end up in the family room. We shall see.....

Very nice indeed! :-) Hehe It looks good there, though. :-) But i'll guess you probably move it eh? I hope you find a place that your happy with! :-) To think of it being in someones home all that time ago, and what memories it must hold. How beautiful. :-) I love it!
Love
Melissa
