It’s fun to add vintage touches when decorating your home. We really like pottery from the 1930′s and 40′s with simple shapes and glazes. Numbers and letters from old signs are also great accents.
A bowl, wire basket or antique counter jar filled with crocquet or pool balls adds colorful interest to a room. We usually add a quick coat of clear Briwax to clean them up and bring out the natural color of the wood and old paint.
When I found it, this cast iron sundial was pretty rusty. It’s another piece that benefitted from a buffing with Briwax to bring out the patina (and seal the rust). This sundial is embossed with a wonderful old saying: Grow old along with me – the best is yet to be. Set in the garden properly, it will do a good job of keeping time.
At FOUND, we’re bringing in more vintage treasures every week this summer. Stop by soon to see what we’ve found!
