Using Antiques in Your Home

The following images are from CountryLiving.com. Showing you clever ways to incorporate antiques into your home decor.

This first one caught my eye as I happen to buy a lot of vintage ephemera. I'm drawn to it like a moth to a flame.

Someone has taken the time to arrange

sepia toned postcards into wall art.

Look how together they create quite a statement!

Old school lockers. I would have never come up with this but it looks great.

This is why I need to see other people's genius to get my decorative groove going.

Then again, I'm not sure I even have a decorative groove,

but if I was going to get one I'd check in with these designers!

I thought this was interesting and I've seen it done before but the article stated this gentleman found these Ukranian newspapers at a Pennsylvania fleamarket. Yay!

An old cupboard....perfect for all of those vintage treasures we find.

Yes, it is just a bookshelf full of interesting decor and art books.

But look to the left...tiny framed tin types.

Be still my heart!

So now I'm inspired...I hope this gave you inspiration as well.

Hoping to list some of my latest finds this week but possibly not until Thursday as I am interested in attending an auction tomorrow night.

Always inspiring! Stay tuned...

All great inspiration photos! I'm really liking the room w/ the old magazine wall paper (I had discovered that somewhere along the line too). And I agree - the collage of sepia postcards is amazing. Nice post.

I have that Country Living issue and really liked how they reused wood locker doors. Thanks for the inspiration!
