It’s been spoken and printed a million times over the years, accessories transform. The repurposed blue dresser, vintage yellow chair, new multicolored rug and new hanging light fixture are the anchors in this space. Thrifted vintage is the best way to add a unique flair to any space. Here’s an excellent example of how thrifted vintage finds, mixed with modern pieces, \ change the entire look and feel of this entryway while offering a sense of joy and comfort in the home.
A large-framed oil painting of lilies notably hangs above the yellow painted-fabric thrift chair as it takes center stage. The lily painting is a beloved heirloom, created by a late aunt. The green floral-stitched vintage pillow, which sits upright in the chair, was grabbed at a hospital fundraising tag sale for a dollar. And what’s so great about the pillow, it has a zipper for easy laundering. The three small complementary floral oil paintings are thrift finds, all with a price tag of under five dollars, and carry out the theme of an indoor flower garden on the wall. A vintage wooden dresser finds a new purpose and home against the wall. The blue dresser with its missing drawer, previously painted several colors, is now equipped with sturdy woven baskets to catch overflow. A variety of simple vintage milk glass vases and a vintage floral tin reinforce the garden feel inviting guests inside with a sense of comfort in the home.
A large green chalk board was saved from a school and is now ready for the holidays with its prominent starry night theme artfully drawn-on by the owner. The vintage yellow chair is now draped with a rich dark blue throw, reminiscent of the long dark nights of winter and accented with a modern white fluffy pillow, a reminder of the snow to come. The new print of two deer keep watch in a simple thrifted wooden frame, which now has found new life with a fresh coat of paint. The tall milk glass vases have been swapped out for a variety of vintage milk glass footed vessels, now proudly cradling vintage miniature trees and glass ornaments. Lastly, the simple lettering and graphics on the vintage cardboard ornament boxes are a reminder of treasured holidays past lending to a sense of joy in the home.
