Having Fun With Farmhouse Style Finds



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.....

peace.

PS:  Thank you for the sweet comments left on my previous post.  ((hugs, hugs, hugs))

I have a thing for old housekeeping books. Well, old books in general, but especially those and cookbooks.

Sometimes I wish I could shop your house... okay all the time ;)

Beautiful Becky! It's perfect! You have a good eye for putting things together. My son had some cowboy boots when he was 2 yr. old, you picked him up and the boots stayed on the floor, LOL. His foot was so narrow he couldn't keep them on.

Lovely room.....your guests will be so lucky!!
I too love black books with gold print spines. When I see one in a sale, it just sorta' follows me home :^) They make the best risers in various displays.
Be blessed,

Just found your blog via Nana Diana's when I decided to blog hop. Love the colors in your room, which go well with all the farmhouse stuff.

I love everything in this room! It would certainly make any guest feel special. It must be so much fun to be an antiques dealer - I'd probably go broke, because I'd want to keep everything!
