Happy Monday my friends! The past three weeks have been super fun starting the week off here on the blog with sharing some antique finds. I LOVE seeing what others are picking up at flea markets & antique shops so I want to share with you guys what I’m picking up these days, how I’m styling this antique haul, & more details. Some weeks it will be a long list of items, some weeks the items will be in a pile in the photo, & some weeks I will share them styled. I have a deep passion for antiquing & all things old & charming from architectural salvage to primitive chippy furniture & everything in between so I hope that these posts help those who are wanting to find more antiques for your homes & inspires those who are already as passionate as me. Here is what I picked up this week…
The Little Chippy Bench
I found a lovely little chippy bench for in our sunroom at our shop from my pal Mustard Seed Beginnings. I’ve been looking for a chippy primitive white bench for some time now so when she brought it in our store, The Found Cottage, I knew I had to have it!
I picked up this antique gold mirror this week with every intention of putting it in our bedroom but when I got it home I had to try it in our entryway gallery wall just to try it & I think I might try it here… I’ll be back later with a gallery wall update if I do!
I found these odd little antique antlers at our shop & I really thought they were kind of quirky & added a little masculine touch to our new office area… I will share more later as this space is just a construction zone right now. Sometimes I find odd things and fall in love with them… I’m not sure I’m in love with these little antlers, but it was one of those finds that I just had to pick up.
I shared this one last week, but I never showed it in our house… it’s a piece of architectural salvage that I fell in love with & had to have. I knew I wanted to try it above our kitchen sink since there was already hanging hardware up there. Who knows if it will stay here, but I do know that this piece is staying here at White Cottage Farm!
What I’m forever collecting
I’ve started styling the new shelves in our office [read more about those HERE] & I placed a few of my new pieces on here so far. I’m forever collecting old paint brushes & silhouettes & putting them around our house. I love the charm of both of them & the paint brushes are a reminder of the hard work & creativity that is a deep part of our lives. This is just one way I have some of these displayed, but I will share more later.
Since we are a military family I’m really drawn to all things military when I’m out antiquing. I found this sign & had to have it for our new office area. Many of you remember “handsome” the portrait I picked up a while ago because I loved it so, well now he has a name & it’s LT. Col. SF. Stebelton. I love this sign & I love it here by my favorite portrait man.
I hope you guys found some treasures if you went to a flea market or antiquing this weekend!! I also hope this post inspires you in some small way & starts your week off great! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today & every single day to see what we are up to! Be sure to follow me on Instagram [HERE] for more behind the scenes & treasures I’m finding! xx
