HERE'S HOW IT WORKS: My "challenger" (we aren't really competing as everyone wins in the world of vintage scavenger hunting) selects the category from a list of options provided by me. The categories can be a specific type of furniture, a specific material, a theme, or a period or style of design. Then we each head out to one (or all) of our favorite local vintage shops, which include just about any shop that sells second hand. We are to find one vintage decorative object that we feel best fits the category. We aren't required to buy the item, so there is no price limit, it's just about what we love!
THE "CHALLENGER": I'm excited to introduce you to my Mother, Lauri, she's the woman who brought me into this world and reared me. She shares my love of antiquing and design and has pulled off some fabulous DIYs in my childhood home.
THE CATEGORY: A while back we created a dresser island in my parent's master bedroom so we thought it'd be fun to make the category a vanity/dresser item.
I'm a bit jealous as my mom spotted some fabulous finds and got to spend the day at my favorite flea market!
Elkhorn Antique Flea Market back in June.
Hands: $5.00 each
What do you love about your find?
Hands: I like that they are tall and clear so they won't add a lot of visual clutter to my dresser while showcasing any jewelry I drape on it.
Sprinkler: It'd be a unique way to store bracelets and necklaces. I love the old patina of this sprinkler, I like the contrast it'd create against my white dresser.
Is there anything you would change about it (paint it, reupholster, etc…)?
No, they are great the way they are!
Where would your put it in your home or dream home?
They'd be perfect on my dresser, I wish I hadn't passed up these great find!
Cost? $69, it's not cheap but they are well worth the price for such a lovely set!
What do you love about your find? I love the Art Deco style with it's crisp angular lines and the beautiful spring green color.
Is there anything you would change about it (paint it, reupholster, etc…)? This is a beautiful find I definitely don't need to change it.
Where would your put it in your home or dream home? My dresser of course!
Thanks Mom! Look for another Vintage Scavenger Hunt post in the next 1-4 months! Have a great weekend!
