AT Boston: Before and After, Mantle Cure from the Stone Doctor

This is from our Boston finalist, Melissa. Comment away!


We have found the end-all-be-all store for antique architectural remnants. We're in the process of renovating our South End brownstone, built in 1895, and one of our first projects was finding a replacement mantle for the master bedroom. I was thrilled to come across Restoration Resources, in the neighborhood's SoWa district (South of Washington)...


Their specialty is high quality salvaged remnants, recycled from historic buildings all over New England. The shop is filled with vintage treasures - mirrors, chandeliers, doors, windows – and of course our one of a kind marble fireplace. What a way to be eco-friendly and chic! You're bound to find something eclectic and amazing at this place. Check out the pics.

Installation was a breeze, too, after Restoration Resources put us in touch with the Stone Doctor. The Doctor is a local expert, handling a variety of stone work. We couldn't be happier with the result!
