Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
A little different than repurposing, upcycling is converting forgotten items and furniture into something creative and utilitarian. Dismantling them and using several pieces to build something truly one of a kind. Inspiring us to scout for salvage and vintage pieces with a story.
These are exceptional; I can see these for merchants, restaurants as well as home.
A wine barrel tub, Great for outdoors too.
Vintage wash stands; porch balusters and doors make these gorgeous benches.
Recognize these? Hint, as a baby we all slept in one.
My design tip: IF you have a sentimental piece but you don’t like the style, upcycle it. The history will still be there. Loving it is using it.
Enjoy a beautiful weekend.
