Marble Lovers: Reinstalled My Redone King of Prussia Mantel Shelf
Some of you know my old house and the remodels I've done to the bathroom, kitchen, and the moulding in the dining room. I finally managed to take the old King of Prussia marble mantel shelf from my den to my local marble and granite yard to be repolished and to have an ogee edge put on.

Now, it looks like new, and the marble place was so excited to get to work with this marble--it's a classic, but rare local stone used in a lot of 18th and early 19th century homes, and it's worth keeping. There's nothing like it (except maybe a very dark bardiglio). Enjoy.
