Time for another installment of my series on ideas for decorating a country home. If you missed my first two installments, head on over and see how you can use rustic wood or rustic metal in your home. Now it is time to show off some vintage touches that you can use in your home.
Vintage items can bring that farmhouse feel into any room of your home. True vintage pieces are absolutely amazing with a real aged patina. Group like items together for a bold statement.
Vintage kitchen accessories are so much fun. Consider showing them off and hang them on the wall...
When talking about vintage touches, we have to mention mason jars. Old crates are another one of my favorites. You can combine the two for a gorgeous vignette. This works for a party or every day.
Have an extra coke crate around? I love this re-purpose into a foot stool!
Re-purposing items for other uses is often key to adding that vintage touch to your home. Quilts are a wonderful vintage touch. Re-purpose a ladder to display them on and it is even better.
Vintage license plates? Oh yes! They can be lovely just hanging on the wall. Re-purposed into a mirror frame however and they are amazing!
Consider turning vintage objects into lighting. This camera tripod turned lamp would work great in a variety of home decors.
Certain vintage items are classics. Ironstone is one collection you cannot go wrong with. Display them in any home for a vintage touch.
Another vintage piece I personally love is an old window. Add paper, pictures, just about anything to an old window and hang it on your wall.
There is a huge movement to re-purpose vintage sheets. You can use them as fabric in so many projects including ones for your home.
What if you don't have any vintage items and don't want to spend the money on them? Fake the vintage! You can distress wood with vaseline to give a vintage look...
Enlarge images you find online of paper dolls for a grouping that looks amazing.
Did you know that you can even MAKE your own "blue" jars?
You can even fake a "vintage" sign.
So break grandma's vintage items out of the attic or make your own "faux" vintage items. Use them, display them, and make your home gorgeous! You can see even more vintage inspiration on my Vintage Home Pinterest Board. Continue to follow along here for even more country farmhouse home decor ideas!
