Incorporating Ironwork Around Your Home
Old ironwork can make a great architectural statement in your home. Julia Hamilton from Southern Living magazine shares some interesting ways to repurpose these beautiful pieces into wall art and more.
Hang two or three iron pieces on a wall with heavy-duty nails for a dramatic focal point. Hanging a grouping of smaller iron accents is a more affordable and less cumbersome alternative to one large piece.
Iron makes for a great outdoor table base because it's weather-friendly. Look for two rectangular pieces about 29 inches tall and secure them with galvanized wire. Place a piece of glass on top for an elegant table that can be used indoors or out.
Set on top of a ceramic pot, this circular grate from a garden center is the perfect perch for drinks or small planters.
When creating floral arrangements in an urn, place an iron trivet over the mouth to hold the stems in place.
For an eye-catching mirror, try an iron door mat. Have a piece of mirror cut to size and secure the two pieces with epoxy along the edges.
