With Christmas come and gone at the speed of light, I’m finding myself doing everything possible to prolong taking down all of the decorations. There are no if’s or butts about it. Christmas is one of the times of the year that I love the most and have already started to make notes on what I would love to make for next year! Am I the only crazy one who does this? Well with that said today I’m turning one corner of our lounge room back into a Simple Farmhouse Vignette using old wares as part of our Farmhouse Hens Blog Hop this month. To enjoy for a wee while. But be rest assured that over the other side of our lounge room our tree is still up and being enjoyed!
Simple Farmhouse Vignette using Old Wares
When searching for things to decorate I always shop my home first. I know I’ve said it before in other posts but it saves you so much money. While at the same time can change the look of one room in less than 5 minutes simply by moving things around in your home.
For example my doily cushion was in another part of our lounge room throughout Christmas. I added some old books and spindles to the wirebasket to blend in with the Vintage Singer sewing machine and other sewing goodies that I have on the corner of our TV unit.
An old ladder with Vintage Linen also adds a nice Vintage Farmhouse feel to our little corner while also giving the vignette some height.
Old letters and number tags are also a fun way to add and lift your vignette and also personalise at the same time. Hubby and I both have the same initials so every time I see the letter “S” or “H” they always fall into my shopping basket.
Simply by removing the sewing machine case it again changes the vignette and you can use the cover in another display through out your home.
Old wooden boxes and crates are also another fabulous addition to a farmhouse vignette. If your beginning to collect goodies to decorate in a farmhouse style keep an eye out at garage sales, roadside cleanouts and thrift stores for things like Old Books, boxes, crates, old linen, scales, bottles, ladders… anything that fits in with the style you are after.
