I found the wagon and fire blanket box from antique stores as well. The wagon is my version of the big industrial cart coffee tables that I love but wouldn't fit in this space.
I don't usually keep accessories on the wagon because there's usually feet propped up on it, or it's being wheeled out of the way for cartwheel practices.
My husband gave me this fireplace gate at Christmas a few years ago. It's one of my favorite things. I love the old double-loop ornamental fencing! And who can resist that rust? haha I think that I have black and white check fabric in almost every room - I love it! I used to have chairs covered in checked fabric in front of the fireplace. When I moved the chairs to a different room, I really missed the look, so I added buffalo check curtains.
The large muffin tin was given to me by a friend (it was her mother's). I loved the look of it so much that I've picked up a couple more. Here's a peek into the dining room - and kitchen just beyond that! Did I mention that our house is small?
I love using vintage pieces (obviously!). You can't beat the green color and patina on these old gardening tools. The wooden stakes are from a croquet game. And thank you spring for fresh tulips!
This is another of my favorites. I needed a small footstool so I made this one out of an old soda crate. (The cushion recently got a summer update!) The crate inspired me to add a few more touches of yellow to the room, and they make me so happy every time I walk in the door. I hope that you all have something that makes you smile when you walk into your homes!
I hope that you enjoyed the tour. Thanks so much for the invitation, Kim!
