A lot of how I decorate is based on what I find laying around the house, at my local thrift store, or yard sales. I try to keep it useful so I don’t add clutter, I add function and fun.
If something draws my eye, I buy it. I figure I’ll find out what to do with it later.
And I always do…
Whether it a vintage yard stick, or a tomato can, I can find a place for it. And, with a little inspiration, you can too. Some items can be altered to be transformed into something other than their original use, and they’re the best ones. They add life, personality and uniqueness to your home.
I put together some images of items I have used around my own house to inspire you to do the same.
Places to be inspired…
