MY 17TH CENTURY FRENCH ANTIQUE PAINTING WITH GUILDED WATER FRAME..SPLENDID!

NORWEGIAN ANTIQUE BRONZE MERMAID STATUE 19TH CENTURY, FROM NORWAY MY NAMESAKE'S COUNTRY.
A whole summer of removing paint, 11 layers that is, has paid off for my 100 year old dining room is so beautiful and bright and not a chip of paint! My stepdad Mac used this peel-away process which he heard about from This Old House TV show, and went to work removing years of paint layers right down to the hand crafted wood which you only see in old homes today. Once finished, i could put back all my treasures and paintings into the room I can use for dining in style. I love sharing all the things I love with you and thought you should see how fantastic my dining room is and I want to invite you all over for dinner....Of course I do!

  2. I found one of the NORWEGIAN ANTIQUE BRONZE MERMAID STATUE 19TH CENTURY at a thrift shop. It is identical. I enjoy my piece very much.

    1. Hi Brenda!
      I am so happy you replied and was wondering where you found it at a thrift shop...was it in Norway? Please let me know as I am very interested in the piece and trying to find out more since my husband 's family is from Norway originally.
      Thanks,
      Patty P :)
