I really love the crusty, chippy, aged patina that grace formally industrial items. I have really been inspired by sites like Junk Market Style and others. Here are some close up shots of some of the industrial items in my home, so you too, can appreciate their time-warn grace.
|All I needed to do was shove this in my car--not an easy task, and take it home! The layers of paint and random drips and streaks are amazing.|
|Here is a close up of the great texture and color variation! I left the original labels in the holders for a nice touch.|
|I got this piece at the same estate sale--I'm still wondering why the top is wonky. My step-dad keeps promising to fix it, but he hasn't had time yet!|
|An old garden shelf and some galvanized zinc buckets make for good storage in my kitchen.|
|I added stainless steel switch plate covers in the kitchen for more of an "urban farmhouse" style. Here also is yet another "flower arrangement" of vintage silverware!|
|Here is one of many industrial wire baskets I have--some for display, and others for storage.|
|Former industrial items even make great art! |
I hope you have enjoyed this quick visit to my Shabby French Cottage! Please follow my blog--I will follow back, just bare with me--it might take me a while.
