a farm lamp~old fabric~locker to store linen & a galvanized tub~ brilliant additions to these rooms

you all know i love me some crunchy design, nothing can make me smile like a little {or alot} of patina. i always suggest a little rusty industrial chic in every home i design. there's something to be said for a an object that has been well used and loved. industrial chic just a touch, can add the character and texture your decor craves. I really covet things that have lived a life. the idea of wabi sabi, or what i refer to as perfect imperfection is an easy way to add a little history and sometimes whimsy and conversation to your home. I am always on the hunt for the perfect pieces to re~purpose and enjoy in my own home. Buying and using these recycled pieces is an effortless way to be green as well. let me know what you have in your home that has been re~purposed.I'd love to hear about your finds. Do you love patina and rust? well let me hear from you!
