This is the bench at our entry which is very old and the mirror so needs to be replaced. We decided to leave it in it’s original form however to protect it’s integrity and beauty. Most people who visit just walk right by it and never notice it. This story gives it so much more meaning.
I can remember my grandmother having one of these pieces very similar in her home when I was growing up and it was positioned right near the door also. It was very similar to the piece that my new hubby and I have.
Thank you so much for sharing this story. It brings back a lot of fond memories.
