So this is the post I have most longed for in the series. After years of pouring over books, magazines, and blogs pining over my most hearted craft rooms, I realized its been my secret dream to have a craft room like one of these. And now maybe once we get a new home (hopefully soon) that dream will start taking shape. In the meantime, here is my stash ... Enjoy! Let me know your favorites!
Happy Valentines Day!! In keeping with our Flea Market Storage theme this week we are featuring Bedrooms today for a romantic Valentine-sie twist. All of the featured bedrooms are flickr finds and have romantic, timeless themes. Although not all images cover storage necessarily, they do offer creative uses for vintage finds in the bedroom. Check out these artist's flickr sites by following the link below each picture.
After a trip to my local library branch and browsing the new arrivals shelf, I spotted a book that has inspired this series on stylish storage using vintage finds. The book:country living storage style by lesley porcelli . Flipping through the pages one night this week spawned an exploration on this topic. So I have many more sources on the subject coming throughout the week. But for now, I pulled some of my favorite pics from the book to share with you here. (It is arranged by room/area of the home).
Amazing use of an antique library bookcase painted and revamped for china display.
As someone who works with painted cabinetry, I love this fresh fun combo of old and new/ color and neutral.
LOVE this crafty work station!! There are so many great repurposed items: the hanging fruit basket, vintage post office boxes, metal locker room baskets!
All photos were judged by Heather S. Thompson (myself) and Eve Peach (my business partner). Eve did not know who the photos were from. Each photo was graded on a 1-5 scale in the following catagories: creativity, composition, originality, theme and color.
Thanks to everyone who submitted to this little contest. I appreciate your creativity! It was a very close race. Each of these contestants were within 1 point of each other.
