In our last post, we explored creative ways to add some swagger to your décor even if your calendar and budget aren’t quite ready for a complete overhaul. Vintage accessories are a great way to add a little history and charm to your home or office without gutting your entire space and starting over.
Little touches like a Victorian soap dish in the guest bath or an elegant crystal doorknob are a no-brainer for any DIY wannabe and create instant appeal. A fresh coat of paint — another easy, inexpensive way to freshen up a room — and a few well-chosen details like these can make a world of difference to the look, not your wallet.
But perhaps you’re ready for something with a bit more oomph. Something that will add a wow factor to your space and be as functional as it is funky. In our ramblings around antique stores and other out-of-the-way places, we sometimes stumble upon vintage furniture that we just can’t pass up. Check out this Rolling Shop Cart we found recently! This industrial mobile work station, from the Sun Service Equipment company, will attract car buffs and industrial collectors who might want to put this cart right back to work in the garage.
With its rugged steel frame, rubberized wheels, and plenty of storage space below, this cart would certainly be functional in a workshop to hold tools and serve as a stable work surface. The repurposed wooden top, however, also makes this rolling cart a likely candidate as a movable kitchen island, a portable bar in the man cave, or as a folding table in the laundry room.
Need something with a little more glam? Then the Curved Leg Table may be just the stunning piece you need in your foyer or front office space. Available in either Polished Nickel or Polished Brass, this utilitarian table is just one of many vintage accessories that can add new life to your décor!
