We love to see our architectural antique pieces featured in magazines. Sitting in our showroom, we can visualize the potential beauty of every antique piece that we acquire. It is something extra special to see one of our pieces fully restored and all dressed up for a special photo shoot! Currently there is a mantel that was purchased from our showroom that is enjoying a feature in two magazines; the Winter 2013 issue of Freshstyle magazine as well as the January/February 2013 issue of Southern Lady Magazine.
Both magazines feature this beautiful mantel in a Colonial setting. A wash of bookcase paint mixed with water was applied to a blue base coat to give the mantel an aged patina.
Another beautiful mantel purchased from Southern Accents can be seen in the “Creative Ways with Holiday Fireplaces” feature in the November/December 2012 issue of Southern Lady Magazine. This stained mantel which features side columns, hand carved detailing and a beveled mirror can be found on page 49.
If you are looking for the perfect mantel to dress up your fireplace we have a showroom and warehouse full of potential candidates! Many are completely restored while others just need a little tender loving care. You’ll find a large variety of sizes and styles in both full and half mantels.
