My husband added some wood and brackets to the bottom of the piece as to raise it up a bit. At first he just added the brackets but soon found out wood was needed as well. So after all of that we got it in place, and I really like the look. Of course if and when I decide to paint the walls we will have to move it. HaHa :0
I am going to start including the prices and places I found my pieces for you. This piece was found at the Rose Bowl Flea Market, it was $200 it is over 100 years old! The wax was about $16 and the brackets a few dollars.
Have a wonderful week, and I hope to be posting some new finds soon.

I have decided to do a new kind of thing for my blog. I am going to show and report on my flea market and garage sale finds, and how I use them in my home.
Let us start with this awesome mantel/fireplace surround that I found last Sunday at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It is over 100 years old and has the perfect chippy, worm holes, and aquaish color to it.
I am going to use it behind my bed as a headboard. First I need to clean and wax it, then raise it up a bit so it's the perfect height for the bed. When it's all done and in place I will show and tell.
Have a great weekend!!! Missed you guys!!
