We have lived in our new home for almost 8 months. How is that even possible? Time goes so fast! I finally feel like we are getting settled into our new home. I have always loved decorating with vintage decor, I feel like it has a story to tell. So I decided to start with a blog post today about our first piece of furniture that we bought. Enjoy!!
We picked up this gorgeous World Market kitchen cart over the summer in Colorado. It was our first purchase for our new home. It now sits in a little cove of our dining room. This is our family “catch all” space. Of course, you know me, I had to incorporate as much vintage as possible.
Here are a few my favorite vintage finds that we used to decorate our kitchen cart.
Wire Egg basket- I love using an egg basket to hold magazines. It makes it so easy for me to grab a magazine & read for a few minutes in between projects or laundry . I love the way the yellow color stands out in our house. Its bright and cheery & functional.
Galvanized Chicken Feeder- This handy little feeder holds tape, paper, envelopes, stamps, etc. I love having all of those kinds of things in one place. I love the look of galvanized metal. And it is kind of cute to think that baby chicks used this chicken feeder.
Locker Baskets- I feel like its Christmas anytime we find these old metal locker baskets. I love love love them! We used ours for storing winter hats & gloves, my knitting project, & school papers. These sturdy baskets can hold a lot of stuff. I can only imagine the stories that these baskets would tell. 🙂
Glass jar- These old jars make a great pen & pencil holder. We always try and have old jars for sale in our kraftykash booth for $1-$5 depending on the size of the jar. I love using old jars for a flower vase in the spring & summer time. I also put a plant start in a jar to get it to grow roots.
Wire office basket- I love vintage office supplies. This wire basket is simple, but cute. It holds all of our papers. It is handy to grab and sit on the table to go through everything. You can use these old baskets for storing scrapbook supplies or kids papers.
A lot of these items can be picked up at your local antique shop or flea market. When we travel for our business, we always have these types of items for sale in our kraftykash booth.
