Do you love antiquing, thrifting, and all things vintage? If so, you’ve come to the right place! Today I’ll share some ideas on how you can spruce up your thrifted vintage finds for spring.
I’m joining my friends for another THRIFTING WITH THE GALS blog post.
If you’re coming over from my friend Stacy at Bricks ‘n Blooms, welcome. Didn’t you love the thrifted finds she shared?
Sprucing Up Your Thrifted Vintage Finds for Spring
One of my very favorite things is to go shopping for antiques and vintage home and garden decor. And when I can find a great deal, that’s pretty much the cherry on top!
I thought I would share a different take on my blog post this month. Rather than showing you the thrifted finds from a flea market, antique mall, or vintage store, I thought I would share some of the vintage items I found around the house and garage, and how I spruced them up for spring.
Garden-Inspired Vintage Spring Home Décor
Do you know what I love even more than vintage décor? Garden-inspired vintage décor. Are you loving these beautiful bright green seltzer bottles as much as I do?
SHOP SELTZER BOTTLES
Flower and Plant Containers
Ironstone and enamel containers are some of my very favorite options to use for plants and flowers.
SHOP IRONSTONE PITCHERS AND BOWLS
A rusty vintage toolbox is another great way to display spring flowers such as these gorgeous daffodils.
SHOP VINTAGE TOOLBOXES
And these faux succulents look pretty amazing in the toolbox as well.
Galvanized buckets and tubs are the perfect choices for both indoor and outdoor plant and flower containers.
SHOP GALVANIZED BUCKETS AND TUBS
And how about this thrifted vintage fountain?
Adding a Touch of Spring with Vintage Windows
I have a thing for vintage windows. It could be because we replaced all of the windows from our 1920 home several years ago, and we kept all of them! I can’t tell you how happy I am that we were able to repurpose them.
Adding a basket of flowers or a wreath add a special spring décor touch.
Vintage windows create interest in our cottage garden, including this one on our potting bench.
SHOP VINTAGE WINDOWS
A Spring Vintage Tablescape
I bought these Desert Rose dishes at an Antique Mall recently. I really loved the pink and green color combination. Spring is always my favorite season for creating tablescapes.
SHOP DESERT ROSE COLLECTION
Not only were the dishes a fabulous vintage find, but I was also able to use a few vintage containers I’ve found over the last few months, and they’re perfect for my spring hellebores.
SHOP VINTAGE PEWTER PITCHERS
I found this silver cup at one of my favorite shops, Details Home and Garden in Poulsbo, WA.
SHOP VINTAGE SILVER CUPS
Sprucing up the Spring Garden
How about finding a thrifted vintage bike for your spring garden. Add a basket or two full of flowers. We were so lucky when a neighbor gave us this bike.
SHOP VINTAGE BIKES
Vintage headboards create interest in any garden. You can use them to separate your garden spaces or as a trellis for your flowers.
I hope this inspired you to spruce up your thrifted vintage finds for spring. Please feel free to leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
