As many of you know, we are instagram-oholics over here and cannot get enough of it. Some of you are even kind enough to show us how our items look in use!! What I love about this is we all have ideas about how/what an item can be used for but it’s amazing that so many of you find new and creative uses for them that we never imagined. We thought his week would be fun to share those pictures with you of just how creative and awesome our fans are!!

Here they go:
This area by boelizabeth is so warm and inviting, we love the use of a large family photo by the fireplace instead of the obvious above the mantel. The earth tones pair nicely with the shabby chic décor and the use of plants and all natural materials really add to the country feel that this focal point is giving. Such a fantastic and creative use of our “vintage tin windmill” having it caddy corner vs the usual go to of centering a wall piece. Props to the homeowner.


This area by roomsforrent gives a great spin to the country garden look. The moss they have added gives a great pop of color with that rich green that compliments gorgeously with the white dishes. The use of the antique silver ware and different levels is very appeasing to the eye.  What an innovative approach to a place for napkin holders by using our “soup tureen” kudos for the creativity, we are loving this idea.



Both of these areas from dearlillie are so cute! The chandelier adds such an elegant touch to this slice of shabby chic heave. I am absolutely loving the repurposed wood table, it gives this space just enough earthiness to ground that amazing chandelier. Using our “galvanized tin” as a focal point center piece was a fantastic idea. The pop of pink in the flowers is just enough and puts me in springy happy mood. Another inspiring use of our “galvanized tin” is shown here with a distressed country chair with a cheerful pop of lavender from the flowers.


This area from dearlillie has a great fresh clean feel to it! I am loving all the white with the muted blue pillows. The use of pitchers for flower vases adds a fun shabby chic effect.  The accent of our “bird on mirror” ties this room together putting a great everlasting touch to this space.


This area from unionwillow shows you just how beautiful and versatile distressed stained wood can be! All the different textures and colors are fantastic. This buffet makes a great place to showcase our “vintage drying rack”! It looks so cute! I adore all the baskets and the mirror adds great dimension behind.

See how much fun you can have with a variety of items? Send us some more of your before and after photos and maybe we will feature you in one our posts!
