Rustic Home Decor

Shabby or Chippy or Upcycled

I've had this obsession with refurbishing and refinishing old thrift store finds for years, long before it was the most popular way to add pop and character to your home decor.

Rustic Home Decor - decorate your dwelling in primitive country style...

Finding banged up and dinged flea market furniture with some pieces missing, or in need of a major upgrade has become a new hobby for a lot of us. 

Coming to a screeching halt outside every garage sale or auction is a common occurrence on weekend drives. 

Keeping all your finds in a shed or garage while they wait for their facelift and/or major surgery gives you an opportunity to decide their fate; will they be completely stripped of paint, sanded and oiled to be a replica of mid century modern delight?  Or left in their original finery, maybe with the addition of some trim and new hardware? 

Rustic decor  has received new interest and acclaim - giving new life to old junk and beat up furniture is no longer just the style for broke college students.   Shabby chic decorating celebrates age and patina of an old and not necessarily valuable piece of furniture. 

Accents like hand painted signs, weathered and distressed to make them look like they're well aged, collections of natural found objects and thrift store finds round out the look.

Whatever you decide to do as a makeover, it will add new life and give you some characterful pieces to add to your home decor.

Here are some of my upcycled odds and ends;
