Andirons Reveal


So this post is a continuation of this post, that I did a couple of days ago concerning a pair andirons that I picked up at an estate sale in the Catskills.  I asked you all what you thought concerning the color.  I got varied answers.  A couple of votes for yellow, or the turquoise, and one for white.  I decided to go the white route.  Okay, so it's a little less colorful, and definitely not as much of a step out of the box.  But, I think it will compliment many interiors...and still provide some interest.  I mean, how often do you see a pair of glossy white andirons holding the wood in a fireplace.  Not so often.  I think they are just different enough to be interesting, but not so wild and out there, that they only appeal to one kind of buyer.  I mean, I'll go out on a color limb sometimes, but, I thought I'd test the waters with something a little safer for this first time out.  So, what do you think?  You like?
