Copper Beauty

Today I am sharing a piece I found on Etsy from France.   I was going to wait to purchase a dough bowl but after thinking about not only the cost, I said, to myself a piece of copper would be perfect with our colors in our Dining room.

So I started my hunt on Etsy.  It took me a few days but that is  half the fun, the “Hunt”.

I found an antique copper Jardinière with Delft porcelain handles.  It is from 1940, maybe not old enough for some but for me I fell in love the moment I saw the pictures.

It has nice patina and I love the Delft handles and the legs.  After I made the purchase I stumbled upon another one that looked exactly the same and the same era.  I felt comfortable even more about my decision because seeing it again in another shop I was still in love.

I knew I would fill this to the brim with dried hydrangea.  This is from one side.

In this photo you notice we have browns in the room and I thought the copper would work better with the tones of the I have going on here.

These candle holders I made a few  years back  HERE out of old table lamps I didn’t use anymore since we downsized.  Why not make them into something useful?  The base is pretty so mixing colors of chalk paint was in order with a bit of silver gilding wax.

These bases are pretty and I added metal rusted crowns to add some whimsy.  Besides I love me some crowns. See post HERE

One final shot. 

I will be back with a post on some other changes in this room as soon as we are finished planting.  

I have plans to antique a mirror in a door I have leaning against a side wall in the room.

Have a super week.  I will be finishing designing pots for our deck.
