I'm happy to report that the rain has officially stopped now. Yay! The sun has been shining and it feels good.
Now that the sun is shining again, I can see all the dust in my house! So, as I was dusting away, I noticed that I haven't talked about some of the old salvaged pieces that I have in my home. I love the character they bring to a room since they had a former life.
The first one is this old ceiling tile that I found at an antique mall many years ago.
It hangs on the wall above the tub in my master bathroom. I've had it here for years and still love it.
It's old and chippy and interesting to look at.
The next item is in my bathroom too. It is an old wall planter. It once had rings on it to hold potted plants. I guess it was intended to hang outside on a patio.
I have it hanging on the wall above the toilet. I took off the rings since I used it without the plants.
It is also chippy and romantic looking. I have always loved this piece.
Lastly, in this same room, I have an architectural fragment perched on the plant ledge above my vanity.
I have no idea what it was in its former life. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I found it at an antique mall years ago too. This was at the time when I was trying to find old salvage. It was just becoming popular then.
Downstairs, in the foyer, I have a couple of old porch columns that I've used as plant holders.
I know I've already posted these, but they are my favorite pieces of old salvage that I own!
I bought these at an antique mall as well. They are a matching pair.
So, if you're looking for a way to add something old and interesting to your home, use old salvage. I like to use things in a way that they weren't intended and I think I definitely achieved that with these pieces. Also, all of these pieces, shown, have not been altered from how I found them. I like that they have been left in their original state too.
Thanks for stopping by!
