Fireplace Mantels. The Old Kind. Could be Your Next Headboard.

Urban Remains in Chicago is one of my favorite places to go in the city to shop for wonderful architectural  elements and finds. You know, the pieces with a "soul". When remodeling your homes, It is so easy to get caught up in purchasing everything new, with no nod to the true spirit of your heritage, or history of the home that you live in. While there I spotted the perfect Fireplace Mantle and Surround that would be perfect for a Queen sized headboard. Added to a room with an eclectic mix of old and new, vintage and modern.
