Cow hide Settee

 
While this little Antique Settee is Darling, I really wanted a
different look and wanted to create a unique piece.
   
Once I stripped it down, I painted it.
Then added new foam, layer of thick batting & under fabric
 
 
 
 
 
And Lastly One of my Favorite Cow hide.
Giveing this darling Settee a New Unique look.
 
We just love it and it sits in our Front window where she
gets lots of attention.

Storage & Organization

Perfect time of year to get organized.
There are so many pieces that were onced used for one purpose that now can be used for everyday items.
Rustic old Library Card Files are great for flowers to peak through-desk top for this & that.
Tall Industrial File Cabinet would be perfect for Paper work-Art Supplies-in an Office-Class room or even a Boys room for clothing or Shoes.
Crates are so Universal stacked-layered-or just set aside.
 
With the Flat file drawers on top, this would be ideal in a classroom for paperwork on top and bigger drawers on bottom for larger items- and with such Charcter.
These little wood pieces with so many drawers are just great on the desk for paper clips-and other supplies or maybe a sewer for thread & more.
 
Visit Gracefully Vintage on Facebook to see all of our Newest Items-
We have many industrial-rustic wood pieces that would be wonderful in any space for storage & everyday use.

Fall Decorating


                      Fall is here & brings such warm colors.

Using Beautiful Rustic Urns to display Dried Hydrageas, Pumpkins or Twigs & Greenery.
 

Gorgeous Hydrageas in Warm Colors for the Front door.

Darling White Pumpkin added to a dish for just a Touch of Fall.

Bring the outdoors inside, with some leaves, wrapped branches, could even add an acorn to the plate to finish off your table setting.

One Grand Ole Pumpkin carved to Perfection.

Darling Lemonade Stand

Loving Pinterest for so Many reasons.
I came across this picture- and Just Loved it.
Thought it was just Darling- Such a Cute & Welcoming way to sell just about anything.
I had this Very Old Drop Leaf Table/Cabinet.
One side had drawers & Cabinet to inside storage.
The Other side lifted up to a Drop Leaf-and was very short-
I used it to store-set (stuff) on it my garage.
 
 
I Decided it would make a Great Lil Stand-
So I used this Lovely lil image as Inspiration-
and Built my own lil Stand.
Adding some Scalloped Thin Wood & Lettering and little Chalkboard to announce what the days sales would be.



 
Not Exactly like the one I saw on Pinterest.
But Not too bad for a Few hours of work.
The Pink & White side is the drop leaf-left down.
The other side the Girls were able to store staws-extra cups-napkins-supplies for their Lemonade & Baked Goods Stand in all the drawrs & Hide their money.
 
The Girls held a Lemonade & Baked Goods Sale in front of the shoppe-
(They were a big hit).

The Bathroom

                                                                    Bathroom        

 There is no reason the Bathroom shouldn't be as Beautiful as the rest of your home.
There are many ways to incorporate the Vintage-French-Elegant-Sophisticated style into your home
these days.

Using old Cabinets-Dressers-Side Tables as a Vanity or for Storage

Adding in Old Vintage/Antique Trumea's or Mirrors

Darling Cherub Statue- or an Old French Chair just as Decorative as useful.


Vintage/Antique Sconces to Frame the Vanity area.

Bringing in an Armoire-to hold Towels-Bathroom essentials.

Hanging a Vintage Crystal Chandelier over the tub- or over the Sink-
Romantic & Just Plain Pretty.

Using Vintage pieces, gives the Bathroom a unique look, but practical as well with an Old ladder leaning against wall to hold towels or Furniture for storage-sinks-or just decoration.
All of which, allows your bathroom to tie into the rest of the home & be just as lovely.
