I decided to do a little round up of some of my favorite vintage pieces that I have in my home & give a little story about them. Some I have shared before & some are new to the blog.
I needed a little break from our kitchen reno and what better way to take a break, than to explore all the vintage goodies around our house!
These are my favorite vintage pieces we have right now!
Wrought Iron Gate:
This piece I found at one of my favorite shops called The Tattered Tulip. This thing weighs a ton so to hang it on the wall was super fun LOL! The shop owner told me that this piece was from a farm in the Adirondacks. I love all its' chippy character. It is the perfect anchor for above the couch. What's fun is that I can switch out that cotton stem wreath each season, however I have been using that wreath for a while now because I love it so much.
I found this piece at another local antique store, The Blue Lady. I am not sure the back story of this piece, but it looks like an old window that was replaced with a chalkboard. Either way, I love it! I am constantly changing the writing on the chalkboard with new inspirational type quotes. I even have used it for writing down our menu for the upcoming week!
I use this rustic potting bench as my coffee bar. The shop owner at The Blue Lady told me that a local man made the potting bench years ago & was ready to pass it along to a new owner which happened to be me! It has some weathered holes sprinkled throughout the piece which make it so charming. Maybe one day I will use it as a potting bench, but for now it works perfectly as a coffee bar.
I have shared this door with you all before, but I had to include it in this round up because I love it so much! This was found in my basement! I have never been so happy to go in my old & scary basement once I found this down there. Read all about the details here.
Blue Table #1
I'm not too sure of any back stories about this table, but I sure do love the style of it! I found this at a local store called Bella Casa & it is the perfect table for our sitting nook in our mudroom. It has definitely been refinished & had the cute little knob added to it, but I love its' charm! The sides can fold down so it can be a lot more narrow too. The little drawer is perfect for storing odds & ends. It's so simple, but so cute!
Blue Table #2:
I guess I like blue tables? This table I do have a back story on. I got it from The Blue Lady & was told that this piece was made by a local woodworker who took apart all different types of furniture to create this table. The legs look like spindles & the sides look like parts of a headboard. I can only imagine the life of the furniture pieces before they became part of this table.
I had been wanting an old pew for a while & when we told our friend that we wanted one, he said he knew someone getting rid of old pews! What a coincidence! I quickly scooped it up & gave it a big makeover. Check out all the before photos here!
Ice Cream Parlor Chairs:
These chairs kind of happened upon me one day. I was out & about shopping & popped in a cute little boutique when I saw these! I knew they had to come home with me. They were green, but I gave them a quick paint job & now they make the perfect accent in our living room. Right now I have them styled pretty simply, but I do dress them up from time to time. Although we don't actually use them to sit in (I don't think they're very sturdy), we do appreciate all the history & life these chairs have seen.
Another basement find! Can you believe it??!! I couldn't! I had to wait a while for my hubby to be convinced that we needed this in our dining room & not downstairs hiding away in the gross basement. Now he is so happy we have it as it stores a lot of our kitchen wares! It was pretty nasty at first, not going to lie, but we put some elbow grease into it & now it's a beautiful piece in our home. Read more about it here.
So what do you think of my round up? I love vintage & unique furniture pieces. I think it makes your home feel more timeless. What are some of your favorite pieces in your home?
