Displaying Vintage Items


Louisiana coastal style


The piano is gone!  It took up this entire wall in the living room and might have been played once a year!  The balustrade table that was in the office was cut down to fit this wall and moved here.  This is the table when we first got it.  It has been in an house fire and was headed to the dump, until I got it!



This is it after I cleaned it up and oiled it down a little.  To see that post, click here.



Part of me really hated to paint it but the back corner of our living room is a little dark and I was afraid it would be a little too gloomy.  Here it is, all painted!

It brightened the corner and highlights the vintage items!  The DIY oyster mirror was rehung lengthwise.  To see that post, click here.

Instead of being hidden away in the office, the antique table top desk is on display!  It’s perfect to display some Louisiana books and the little drawers are perfect for receipts and bills!

The portable typewriter is a recent auction purchase.  Hunter has several and I was using one but has stored it away because it was so big.  This little portable one if the perfect size.

When not on display, it has it’s own case that is stored below.




Thanks for stopping by!
