Again a yard sale. We found these at an ongoing yard sale. The guy buys out other sales and estate sales and resells the stuff. Recently he bought out a huge estate and there were a lot of antiques.
Well Cj and me saw these and we both wanted them, but he wanted $20.00 a piece, $40.00 for both.
I could not afford that, but we had some items boxed up from old yard sales etc and I offered to make a trade, he agreed. So I took my stuff up to the mountain and we exchanged. Now these are HUGE and HEAVY. They weigh about 20lbs each and are over 2' tall. They hang on the wall and act as a shelf. They are very elegantly carved.
So We are going to put them in the master bedroom on each side of a window (I will post a photo after we repaint the room) but I have to make 100% sure they are in a stud.
