Architectural Headers

I love "above the door" headers!

I bought this beautiful chippy white architectural pediment a few months ago from Laurie Anna's, one of my favorite vendors in the Arbors at Canton's First Monday Tradedays. (Her decorating is cutting edge, unpredictable, & her booth is always full of the most wonderful finds! I can't wait to see what she has each month!) This is new and made of a kind of resin, I think, but it looks like real vintage wood! I love it! It's above the patio doors in our courtyard.

Reminder: you can double-click the photo to enlarge.

This header is above the window in our master bedroom. It also looks vintage but is new. It has a fleur-de-lis in the middle; it's made of wood with cream paint and distressed to look old. I bought it in the Arbors at Canton probably about a couple of years ago.

"Believe in your Dreams" is a sign I made myself a few years ago, when taking an evening art/painting class, using vintage barn wood, which I "washed" with a burgundy paint. I stenciled ivy leaves in varying shades of green around the wording. It hangs over a doorway in our bedroom.
