Decorating With Vintage Breadboards

11.09.2014

No, this is not the start of my Christmas decor. I don't normally start that until after Thanksgiving.
This is just a vignette I have on the sideboard in the great room using two of my new vintage breadboards and the preserved boxwood wreath that stays out all year.





I lucked up on these two beauties at the Country Living Fair a couple weeks ago. The preserved boxwood wreath just adds another layer of texture and color.

Every time I find a real vintage breadboard (there are reproductions) I just have to check it out.

The older and more worn the wood the better. I love the thickness of this smaller one and look at all those tiny worm holes.

The more unique the handle shape the better, too.



And while we are talking unique shape look at this one I bought at the Liberty Antiques Festival.

The patina is amazing.

This one has the best shape of any that I own.

For now it hangs on this narrow wall in the sunroom.

You can check out how I have used more breadboards in the links below.



I've been working hard this weekend on a new project that has finally gotten started after being put off for way too long.

 Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Kim, they are perfect in those spaces. Love the texture they bring. I think that might be the next thing I might have to start collecting. (Plus they work with any color scheme you might have anytime you want to change a color with paint! LOL)

  3. I love breadboards. I love how you put them together. I just saw a huge one at a local bakery..like 4 ft long. I am going to try to convince him to sell it to me. : )

  7. I collect vintage cutting boards... not sure what the difference is except they are probably smaller versions of a breadboard? I love yours and how you've displayed them. I hope that those worm holes are old though, my mom bought a vintage chair and it still had the worms making new holes in it! Maybe you could put it in the oven for awhile or something just to be sure ;o)

  9. Fantastic! They add so much warmth, and I love them as a backdrop to the scale. The two red apples adds the perfect pop of color!

  11. Every time I see one of your breadboards, I wonder why I don't have one. I guess I actually need to go antiquing to find one.

  16. I would love to have some. Yours are all beautiful and each one is unique. Love the scale too.

  17. I love your bread bowls. I think old wood is such a great touch in a house...to lend texture, and a sense of history. I agree with another reader that your bread boards and boxwood wreath can go through Christmas.
    I always like to see what you are working on. I think I have picked up the habit of switching out table vignettes often...as after a week or so I am ready to create another mix of items.
    I am One of your faithful WOW party linkers too.

  25. Kim,
    I looked at breadboards at Round Top this fall, but couldn't find one that said, "Take me home," like your curvy one. Boxwood is perfect all year. I just got a new boxwood today. It is live in a pot, about 2 feet tall, and shaped like a conical tree. Already I see it in my Christmas decor for this year.
