Kitchen corner decor

It was an unexpected find, like most of those type of finds, discovered at a yard sale. I had an idea of what it might be, but wasn't really sure. This piece of ornate black iron looked old, and victorian, and with the $1 price tag, I knew I 'needed' it! When I got it home I realized coming up with a bracket to attach it to the wall, that really looked appropriate, was going to be a challenge. So I set it aside and tried to imagine the 'right' look. And to my amazement happened across a black, ornate iron bracket at another yard sale just a few weeks later. Of course, when I got it home, it was close, but not quite right. Enter husband + tools! He did a bit of grinding, bending and painting and voila! It is just a hair off from looking perfect - that's close enough for me!
I love the way it looks. Oh, and the kerosene lamp was a gift from my daughter - maybe 8-9 years ago.

I may have to do some rearranging in that corner, but I love all the pieces....the doorknob key rack, the iron plate holder, the brown drip plate, and the brown pie plate on the bottom - all from yard sales. The yellow platter was a pass-down from a dear friend that I see only once or twice a year now.
