This antique postmasters desk from upstate South Carolina in now acting as our entertainment center!
This old tool box shows the wear-and-tear of many tools and jobs from the past.
Love this old window and all the layers of paint from days gone by by. It adds so much interest to this room. Not to mention the linens that have been passed down from grandmother to granddaughter.
This room is a perfect picture of mixing the old with new. Antiques mixed with new upholstery and the modern chair show how they work can together.
One can only wonder where these have been and who they traveled with!
Show collections in a grouping. These old wooden dowels make in impact on the bookcase. I kinda like that these belonged to my husband’s Grandma!
Display old books together. They bring so much interest to a room!
We use this family dough bowl for icing drinks, low country boils, and displaying collections.
One of my favorite finds has been this old ladder. I have found many uses for it over the years. In this picture, I hung old milk containers and mason jars to showcase flowers.
In this room I mixed the antique sideboard (handmade by husbands Great Grandfather) with ceramic magnolias and and new lamp and mirror. Oh, and how beautiful are the spindle legs on this high chair that Grandaddy used to use?
Use an old crock as a planter or add glass and make an interesting side table.
