The Vintage Closet

First I'd like to introduce you to my new friend, Ducky. He's happy to twirl his cane if you wind him up! And sorry, he's going into my personal collection for now so he's not up for grabs at the moment.

First I'd like to introduce you to my new friend, Ducky. He just came to live with me today! He's happy to twirl his cane if you wind him up! And sorry, he's going into my personal collection for now so he's not up for grabs at the moment. I'd say he's my fave find of the week!

Let me introduce you to THE VINTAGE CLOSET. This is the old coal and canning room in my house. It's just off of my studio and it holds some personal belongings, supplies, and well a whole lotta vintage! This is where most of the vintage I sell lives. I try to categorize by color, one because it looks awesome and 2 because it makes things easier to find. When a vintage order comes in I march over to The Vintage Closet and grab the items. I've been getting gobs of treasures lately and it is full up! Today I decided I needed to do a little mini makeover. I zipped off to the hardware store and picked up some paint and boards. This is the before and below is the after!
Now, let me introduce you to THE VINTAGE CLOSET. This is the old coal and canning room in my house. It’s just off of my studio and it holds some personal belongings, supplies, and well a whole lotta vintage! This is where most of the vintage I sell lives. I try to categorize by color, one because it looks awesome and two because it makes things much easier to find. When a vintage order comes in I march over to The Vintage Closet and grab the items. I’ve been getting gobs of treasures lately and it is full up! Today I decided I needed to do a little mini makeover. I zipped off to the hardware store and picked up some paint and boards.

painting the wall aqua melmac blue really spruces up the vintage closet, and with a drill and a chop saw a gal can whip up some shelves in a matter of minutes!

I only bought enough wood for 3 shelves but I may leave the bottom shelf without the riser to stow away some larger pieces. I love the blue and yellow combo, much better don’t ya think.

Hi, Lis I was set over from Lisa’s Retro Style and I sure am glad I did! I love your Vintage storage closet, what fun my stuff is out of control, but you sure have great system. I sure would love to Shop at your House. I will have to check out your Etsy Shops Too. Come by and visit my Blog sometime soon. I sure love making new friends. Hugs, Diane
