This weekend, I went shopping in an enormous antique store:
It had equal amounts crap and really awesome crap, which makes the hunt all the more rewarding when I find something I really like.
I really wasn’t looking for anything in particular, but when I found this old washboard hiding beneath a stack of picture frames, I knew it had to come home with me (I’ll tell ya more about the trunk in a separate post at some point).
The worn & weathered look of the wood reminded me of the old wooden bucket I picked up a couple of years ago for the living room. Mixing old pieces like these into all of the new stuff in the house gives it that “collected over time” touch. Big fan of that.
I knew the exact spot for it: in between the pantry doors in the kitchen. Too bad that old wallpaper is still thwarting my every attempt to remove it (and what luck! There are TWO layers of it! Yay for me!).
It’s at least nice to think of what will go on that wall when the dizzying yellowed flowers are dunzo, right?
