I have quite a collection of vintage windows. After replacing them ten years ago, we kept all the original windows from our 1920 house. But apparently, that wasn’t enough. I’m always buying these vintage treasures every chance I get.

Their weathered frames and unique panes create a charming backdrop to display your spring decor.

spring vintage home decor: enamel pot full of red and yellow tulips

I always seem to find good deals on enamel pots and trays at my favorite thrift stores and antique malls.

Let’s start with enamel pots. I use many of them outdoors in the garden as planters after drilling holes for drainage. But these vintage goodies can also be used for various indoor spring home decor options:

  • Place colorful flowers in enamel pots to create a pretty spring vignette on your kitchen island.
  • Display a single, large pot on your coffee table in your living room, surrounded by smaller pots filled with natural elements like twigs and moss.
  • Use a larger enamel pot in the center of your kitchen table filled with lemons or limes.

This hanging scale is one of my favorite finds ever! I bought it to hang in my kitchen to store fruits and veggies while looking fabulous. But I quickly realized I didn’t have the space to hang it.

I decided to hang it in the laundry room, where I display faux flowers and greenery during the spring and summer.

Smaller scales, like the rusty version on the laundry room shelf, can be used to display birdhouses, pots, springtime nests, birds, and anything that needs a little height is perfect.

These vintage scales are the most common thrift store finds and are usually priced to sell because there are so many out there.

When displaying your seasonal flowers, using galvanized buckets and pails is one of the best ways to show them off. I love the rustic charm these spring thrift store finds provide.

Vintage galvanized buckets add the perfect industrial vibe to any outdoor or indoor space. Their weather-resistant nature makes them ideal for embracing the season’s unpredictable weather.

These rusty thrifted finds have many decorative and functional purposes, from displaying bright spring blooms and functioning as charming planters for your garden plants, to being repurposed as rustic storage options for garden tools or household essentials.

Most of these galvanized vintage finds have holes in the bottom for water drainage. They’re often used for outdoor flowers and plants.

When using my buckets or pails as spring vases, I place mason jars filled with water inside to hold the flowers. The buckets above hold three jars each, keeping the fresh flowers hydrated and the stems upright inside the bucket.

There’s something about vintage flower frogs that makes me smile.

They come in different sizes and are great for holding flower stems upright in a vase. They’re still used for that purpose, but I love using them in vignettes to add color and interest to my spring vignettes.

Try putting vintage flower frogs in a glass jar, bowl, or tray to display their unique appearance.

Nothing says springtime like potted flowering plants and bulbs growing in a terra cotta pot.

Collecting vintage terra cotta pots and saucers at local thrift stores, garage sales, and flea markets doesn’t take much money.

Terra cotta pots capture the essence of spring with their earthy texture and warm, natural tones. Over time, the aged patina on vintage terra cotta pots adds a layer of rustic charm and character to any garden, patio, or indoor space.

There are many ways to age a new terra cotta pot, but I’d rather find thrifted vintage terra cotta pots for my garden. I use them for spring tablescapes and vignettes in almost every room in my home.

An old quilt is a fabulous vintage find and a great way to add a touch of cozy charm to your spring home decor. Because my home has little storage, I keep my vintage quilts in a glass cabinet.

With their handcrafted patterns, each stitch and patch tells a story.
