What makes me happy today? All the things Carrie and I bought and witnessed at Round Top this week!
I am a little embarrassed to publish this post because my pictures are not as pretty the ones Carrie posted yesterday. Carrie took great pictures and even used a cool photo app. Carrie is straight up awesome! Um…well…I didn’t carry my weight as a co-blogger at Round Top. I was quite lazy and maybe a little too excited to be at Round Top to focus straight. Sorry about that! Maybe you’ll forgive me because the things I am about to show you are way cool (even despite the bad photography.) :)
Here’s are all the amazing junk I think you’ll love to see! So many fantastic ideas and lots of inspiration.
So here ya go…enjoy!
How lovely is that turquoise clock? And what about the color combination with the bright couch and cushions?
More crazy bright color…look at this chair. Orange has always been one of my favorite colors and it’s really bold and nice here mixed with the dark upholstery.
I believe Carrie said these chairs were being replicated now by Pottery Barn. I forgot what style the vendor said they were called. These chairs are actually replicas also and made to look old. A couple of vendors at Round Top do replicas of just about everything and make it look like antiques. Although I love the style and they look amazing…think I’d prefer to actually have originals.
Necklaces made from cut up license plates.
I’ve been wanting something like this for a long time to use as a jewelry case. What they did here was creative..basically they used an old window frame and then built a base and stand for it. I thought long and hard about buying this but I have no where it will fit in my house. And my mom has a ton of old windows so if I ever do find a place, I think I’ll try to make something similar myself.
Flattened and stamped silverware. I’ve been wanting to learn how to do this. I saw a tutorial on another blog and it looks pretty easy. Maybe one day!
Painted croquet balls? Just decoration? Pretty whatever they are!
The picture doesn’t justify but this chair was gorgeous with beautiful green upholstery with grey accents.
Antique corrugated metal used as a cabinet base.
Carrie had a great idea for this old industrial antique – use as a coffee cup holder.
I really wanted to buy one of these old oil lights…
Old pot strainer holder made into a light fixture.
Lots of pretty glass items.
These are old antique metal tiles that would be beautiful used as ceiling tiles. Some were even painted and even more lovely.
This is a table with a steel top. I’d love to know where or how it can be done because I have a wood table that would be perfect topped in steel like this. It would give my table a nice industrial look and be very durable. There is no way a steel top like this could get messed up with crafts, cooking or any other type of heavy messy work.
Another one of my favorite things in the world…typography!!! These were especially nice because they were giant numbers.
An interesting military style case.
These are lamp shades made with a burlap type material. They probably produce nice ambient light.
Handbags made from coffee bags.
This was a long industrial table with iron cylinders on the top.
Quite a bit going on in this picture but if you look at the top, you’ll see an old fan made into a light.
Old pieces of metal cut into arrows.
An industrial material converted into a planter.
I had no where to put these giant antique fuel pumps (nor the money to afford them) but I loved them!
Lots of good ideas right? Want to know what I bought? Stay tuned Monday!
