One thing that I like about my job as an antique dealer is finding cool stuff that I can incorporate into my home. It is so much fun! Over the past few months, I have collected a few farmhouse style things that I have added to the recent remodel in our guest bedroom.
The cowboy hat was a few dollars at a farm sale...
...and these child size cowboy boots were seven dollars at a little junk shop. My friend had the stool for sale in her space at the shop - and it is chippy black paint (love.....) - and it goes nicely with the other things in the room. I actually use it as a side table next to the bed, but thought it would make a nice photo prop. :)
The primitive stave bucket (below) was six dollars at a cool garage sale. LOVE the worn wood patina and the warmth of the metal strapping that holds the wood slats together.
I cut some flowers from the yard and added them to a vintage mason jar...a one dollar garage sale find.
Not everything comes with a "few dollars" price tag. The two chairs below were a full price splurge, but I HAD to have them. The child's chair was made at the turn of the century and came from a local estate. The larger chair is by far one of my favorite finds. It has a nice driftwood color, old nails and the neatest details - of which I will have to share another time as it is all covered up right now.
Another fun thing to collect are old books. This one is from the early 1900's. I love books that have black covers and spines with gold writing and details. Ohhh...the details of long ago.
And they make for a good read!
Till next time.....
