We have been looking for a huge piece of architectural salvage to hang on our living room wall above the TV ever since we bought this house last fall. We finally found it a couple of weeks ago. See it below? The huge painted door panel?
I don't have a picture of "before" above the TV facing straight on, but you can see the TV to the left in the picture below, with nothing above it.
I found this picture below, of when we were looking at the house and it was "staged". You can see the big blank wall.
Here is a closer picture of the panel. We found it leaning against a wall in a horse stable, outside of a French Chateau. Really....we did. But, how could that be? We didn't go to France a few weeks ago. I will tell you the whole story at the end of this post.
Here is a different angle shot below. The piece of iron above the panel is a piece we have had for years.
So, on to the whole story about the French Chateau and horse stables. Here is the Chateau...it is about 20 minutes from my house. It is the Biltmore Estate.
To the right of the house, are the old horse stables, that have been turned into shops and a restaurant. In one of the shops, we found this antique reproduction panel leaning against a wall and new it was the perfect piece for our TV wall.
Now, changing the subject....our pergola is coming along, slowly. We have to work on it, early evenings after Mr. Comforts is finished working for the day. We have had some afternoon thunderstorms that have halted the work.
What are you up to this week?
