Well, we survived the storms. Thank goodness! They weakened, greatly, by the time they made it to us. So, we've only been dealing with rain so far.
Have you ever wondered what to do with something you find at an antique store? I've had these old columns for years. When I found them, I wasn't exactly sure how I would use them, but knew they would add some personality somewhere!
I recently moved one in my foyer and placed a concrete artichoke on top. I'm using it as an architectural piece.
I like how simple it is and fills an empty spot without looking cluttered.
The other column I have is in my sitting room. I'm using it as a planter.
The tops of these columns actually have a hole in them, so I can place something inside if I want too.
For extra stabilization, my columns have been placed on top of cement capitols. I like how they look as well.
So, these are just a few ideas of what you could do with an old column if you happen to find one. I've been enjoying mine for a very long time and can't imagine that I'll ever part with them. They're truly one of a kind!
Thanks for stopping by!
