This weekend I was fortunate to find some affordable salvage pieces at Oliver and Rust's Vintage Style Barn Sale. Meg had an amazing sale and has collected and painted some really great items. I could have stayed all day soaking in the vintage loveliness but my sister-in-law came along and she might have thought that was weird :) It was great to meet another blogger in real life too. I was really drawn to her painted pieces but ended up buying three salvage pieces- an old six-paned window, a perfectly chippy tall column and a small baluster.
These rustic pieces would work in lots of places in our home but for now I put them in our living room. Like the rest of our home, our living room is a work in progress on a tight budget but I really like how it is looking. I would love to find a large affordable area rug and I have plans to add larger end tables next to the leather couch.
I love the chunkiness of the column, possibly an old porch post. There are so many ways to display old windows and this paned window may end up on a wall.
The chippy single pane window leaning on the large white mirror was from a different sale last year. I added the trio of stemmed candle holders with maple pecan votives and the large pine cone to the dresser vignette for more Fall texture and scents.
A berry garland with rusty metal stars fills a footed mercury glass bowl. Although not the greatest photo, this shows more of the six paned mirror.
This is the photo gallery with a cow theme that I shared here. I think it fits the space above the sofa much better now.
Another large pine cone and two seeded glass lanterns were added to the coffee table. Simple and quick -just what I need in these busy days. I know I have lots of accessories going on, but I enjoy seeing our collections. Rustic, casual, and reflecting our family. It has rained on and off since Friday and I was fortunate that the sun came out early this afternoon, just in time to snap a few photos when I got home from work at 3.
I'm sharing this at the following great link parties...
