This week for White Wednesday I thought I would post a picture of our fireplace.
So here it is. The fire surround itself it painted in a stony white.
The candlesticks are painted in Craig & Roses Regency White & then distressed.
Two silver photo frames sit on the hearth, one has a photo of my Nana with my mum as a new baby which was taken in 1940 & the other is a photo of my Grandad in his uniform.
The two candlesticks on the top of the fireplace are vintage & were bought for me by my lovely Mummy who knew I was looking for some & picked them up at a charity shop for £1.99 for the pair!
The little jar at the other end beside the mirror is one of my vintage bon bon jars which has a very slight blueish tinge to it which is only really noticable if you place it next to my other bon bon jar which is the same apart from the tinge of colour! I thrifted this from a charity shop for £1.99.
The mirror was a thrify find from a carboot which I paid £8 for & painted anitque white & then aged a little by staining with some tea & then distressing!
The pretty wallpaper is grey with a pretty white pattern & is from Laura Ashley & was called Josette.
In the mirror you can just about see some of our wonderful original cornice that we are lucky to have along with our huge tall ceilings that come along with Victorian Houses & the two painting which are hung on the wall are by our bestest friend the artist Paul Denham & are a rare white palette for him but totally perfect for our home.
So I hope you like our pretty little fireplace, it is full of pales, whites & vintage as you can see which of course you know I love ...
