I found this old fireplace surround a while back. It's cast iron, with it's original finish. I think it surrounded a small room gas fire place. It's about 30'' tall and about 24'' wide.
It's more a gray color with rust spots growing. I really like the look of it as is. I love the flower detailing, and the flourish at the top. It's a piece I couldn't resist. Now, I'm not sure where and how to use it. It's really heavy, so I can't hang it on the wall.
I don't want to put it on the porch or in the garden, because I don't want it to become completely rusty, as it would do in Western Oregon. Any ideas?
