Vintage Colors

Any project in our house leads to redoing vignettes with vintage colors. My hubby is awesome at this and he compiled this one for me when I told him I wanted to do it in a vintage look with red and green. These colors just pop when put together.

Vintage looking tins sit next to my perpetually homeless little red chair. I think it has found a home finally.

My vintage watering can with the red spout looks perfect up here in a summer time display.

You can see my new crown molding in the back. We have yet to finish painting it but those types of projects move slowly around here.

  3. I am on a vacation now, and I'm having trouble loading pictures, but I love what I can see! It looks so summery. I have a couple of small chairs that I think I will move around and find new spots for.
