A Decorative Fireplace Mantel with Old Shutters

A few weeks ago, my readers left several great ideas for my WWYD Wednesday post about old shutters. I'd like to share a couple of photos sent to me from reader Julieanne. She says, "I found the old mantle at an auction for $70 and added the shutters and glass handles! Absolutely love the finished result!"

Me too Julieanne! Check out this before and after, everyone.
I love it Julieanne! I think a fake fireplace adds a lot to a room. I have one too, but yours is fabulous! Do you hide anything behind the shutters? I like how the transformation sets off the mirrors and that ornate piece in the middle.

Thanks for sharing with us. 

WWYD Wednesday- Door Knob

I have this door knob that I believe is porcelain, but it looks like marble or stone. I want to use it for something decorative. So, I thought it would be the perfect idea to put to my readers for What Would You Do Wednesday.

I thought I had a good photo, but when I blew it up, it's a little blurry. Sorry!
What do you think? What would you do with it?

WWYD Wednesday - Wood Finials

I picked up these two finials at a yard sale. I'm not sure what I'll do with them just yet, but I know someone out there will have an idea for WWYD Wednesday. They normally would screw into the end of a wooded drapery rod, but I'm looking for something less traditional.
They are made of wood, and they have wood screws attached. What would you do with this?
