I have a confession. I like brass. I’ve heard so many bloggers talk about how ugly brass is and I decided that it was time that someone stood up for brass. I think it is pretty and classic.
I rearranged some accessories the other day and couldn’t figure out what to use to the right of my chocolate set on this dresser. I found two brass candlesticks in the basement that I hadn’t used in forever. I received both as wedding gifts back in 1994. Brass was popular back then. One of these is Virginia Metalcrafters which now out of business. Perfect! The lamp was my dad’s desk lamp when he was in college.
There’s a lot of brass in my home. All of the window and door hardware are brass.
I will admit that old brass is prettier than new brass. My kitchen has stainless appliances and brushed nickel hardware on the cabinets, but I still went with brass doorknobs and hinges because that’s what I have in the rest of the house.
I love my Virginia Metalcrafters switchplate and outlet covers. I wish that I had them in all of my rooms and now they aren’t available. My mom gave me most of these as gifts.
Mama and daddy gave me this fireplace set when we got married. I think it wouldn’t be nearly as pretty if it weren’t brass.
So what’s your opinion? Do you like brass? You won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t, be honest!
