They stand at about 7.5 feet tall
Just to show you the size, I placed a quarter in the swag. The roses are like mini baseball size.
I was very lucky to come across these....
Another favorite piece of architectural salvage was this pediment.
It is also very large, over 4 feet wide
Solid carved ribbon, and roses.
This once was a door pediment
I wonder what was in the center of this oval? And why someone sanded
or took off what was there?
Never the less.... I love it just the way it is.
I still don't know what to do with it, I haven't found quite the right place to put it.
I love these old 1920 cement statues. I try to buy them whenever I can.
Once a part of a fountain or planter, they make wonderful architectural elements for the home.
This is mine I have in my dining room. I love the old crackle painted concrete.
My new column, I added the capitol. I used to have a very plain column, and I loved it, but out with the old and in with the new. I mean old. I mean new old. You know what I mean.
Now seriously my dining room is complete. I know I keep saying my rooms are finished, but as you all know, there is always something better out there.
When will it ever be finished?
I have 1 more capitol exactly like this, I don't know what I am going to do with it just yet.
I hope you all enjoyed my architectural white wednesday.
