Why Do I Love

August 9, 2009

the things that are worn, distressed and a little bit aged? Why am I drawn to these imperfect things?

I think it is because I love to give new life to something that has history. That was once loved, used and then discarded. Many people like to be surrounded by the new, never been used - not me. So instead of heading for the nearest department store, I head to the local antique stores. That is where I find the greatest treasures and last week this lovely cabinet came home with me for under $30. I am anxiously waiting for my DH to put in my studio wall and fill it with my treasures.

Your new cabinet is charming. I agree: vintage decor is lovely.

I love old and worn and full of history too! How will you use this cabinet? Are you planning to paint it or leave it as is? It looks like it would be great for storage or as a shadow box filled with special things.
