going to garage sales and looking for that "thing" that isn't being appreciated.
Possibly someone else's junk and giving it a new altered life.
So.....recently I had an adventure with friends "picking" and have been totally inspired to pursue my love of all things vintage. I love finding an old piece of furniture and giving it new life with paint and a unique style. And so I am in the collecting and organizing stages of a new adventure....
"Paint & Patina"
It will be all things patinaed (is that correct?)....with patina....old and rediscovered, reinvented.
It is "green" and the possiblities for creativity are endless!
Here are a few small finds.... creations and furniture posts to come in the future!
vintage candle holder
glass foil vase...so pretty
60's-esque clay bowl- "groovy"
I need help here from an equestrian to define these.....
cool, old leather horse straps
not sure what they will become...but pretty sure a wine bottle would fit right in there!
beautiful glass jar with tin cap....beautiful for flowers.
love this apothecary jar with the teal paint patina
vintage (metal) t.v. trays....aka, magnetic memo board
this picture doesn't do it justice, but I used an old found bottle,
wired and nailed it to this convex wood board I found.
It is painted with a distress and will be beautiful hung on the wall
with a simple flower.
Many more ideas....and vintage finds to come!
