An Old Find for the Living Room

For the most part, I like modern pieces.  But every now and then, I find an old treasure I can’t wait to take home.

This old basket is an antique Chinese rice bucket.  I found it during a recent Atlanta thrifting event with local bloggers at a store called A Classy Flea.  I found some fantastic odds and ends, but this was the only one I couldn’t leave without.  Tip:  don’t leave an item like this unattended.  You see it, you snatch it – before someone else does.

I’m not entirely sure what to do with it yet, but I think I’ll keep it by the chair in the living room and stock it with some of my favorite magazines.  I just love the mix of old and new.  By layering aged pieces into a more modern room design, the room looks like it’s been collected over time rather than bought entirely out of one page in a catalog.

Feel free to share your own old finds!

    Wow! I didn't realize you had bought anything! I love seeing everyones deals. To me that's half the fun.

    I saw one of these at an antique store a few weeks ago, loved it then… But its price tag did not love me back.
