15 Fabulous Ideas to Give Your Walls Instant Vintage Charm

August 05, 2014

Every year come early spring {after a long winter of being cooped up inside} I am so ready to hit any outdoor sale that will yield amazing vintage finds. It is so much fun to comb through years of history to discover a piece or 2 that you fancy & feel connected to. This summer I began bringing my 9 year old with me, who already has a well defined love of history. He has become my little sidekick and it has been incredibly exciting to unearth really cool old things together. The hunt & capture is the fun part, often there is an uncertainty of where to put these treasures when you get them home. The thing I adore about vintage styling is that there are no real rules just ways to find balance. So here are 15 fabulous ideas to incorporate vintage items to your walls that will give them instant charm…..
