Organize with vintage pieces...

Growing up on a farm in rural Alabama I was taught to appreciate vintage and antique pieces handed down from our family.  I totally love all the pieces my Grandmother gave me and my Mom and I spend considerable amounts of time searching for and refurbing vintage pieces to use in our homes.  It is very hard to find a piece of furniture made these days that can withstand the wear and tear that an antique piece can.  Be careful when your searching for vintage pieces...check for things like dove-tail drawers and liners between the drawers of chest and dressers.  Real wood pieces are always preferred over veneered pieces too (there are a few instances where veneer pieces are nice but rare).
 I'm Loving these vintage pieces refurbed for storage...makes for a wonderful little home office area.

 pretty mini roses are so delicate and make me think of my Aunt Carrie's farm house
this vintage hutch and a desk made from reclaimed lumber is so gorgeous
 closet doors glammed up with vintage mirror treatment
 fabulously done art gallery hallway (sometimes you can find gorgeous vintage frames).
 this little nook is so dreamy
 lovely little pantry with painted chalkboard on the door
 Be creative ...use some wonderful vintage pieces to decorate and organize
