My Favorite Pieces

You know those pieces in your home that you just love and know you’ll have forever? Well today I’ve teamed up with seven other bloggers to share just that–our most treasured goods.  It was a hard choice for me, but I’ve selected five of my favorite items currently in our home. Be sure to check out the other bloggers at the end of this post!

1. My chippy old door

Old Door

There are few things I love more than an old door. I have two in our home, but this one is my favorite. My dad found it for me and I looooove it. It’s adds so much to this room.

2. My Granny’s trunk

This piece speaks for itself. It’ so gorgeous and timeless I just love everything about it. My Granny had this in her living room all of my life, so it’s been an honor to have it in my home now.

3. Birdcage

This is a cool piece that’s been in my family for years now. It’s rusty and old, but there’s just something about it that I love.

4. Vintage Coffee Table

I picked this up a few months ago from a local antique dealer. I have never seen one like it and I love it. The details are my favorite. I wish I had 5 more just like it!

5. Wooden Toolbox

Vintage Toolbox Centerpiece

I shared a little about this old toolbox and why it is so special to me in a recent post. But just look at it’s simple beauty and vintage charm. I’m currently using it as our centerpiece on our dining table and I think that is the perfect spot for it.

    They are all so lovely! I especially enjoyed reading that several of them had been passed down from family members, which makes them extra special! Thanks for sharing your treasures with us, Sarah! ❤

    I absolutely love this. I have a few pieces I made into distressed pieces to get that same look and looking to get a trunk for my son’s bedroom. I pinned quite a few of your images. Love your style!

  • BOOM. New chairs done ✅ I conquered a zillion little screws today & inadequate instructions to put these beauties together. What do you think?! I’m loving them already & wondering why I waited so long to upgrade from the free Craigslist chairs we’ve had in our dining room for 3 years now 🤷‍♀️Oh well, I guess it was worth the wait.

  • To paint or not to paint?! 🤔 I chatted about this antique washstand on the blog + in stories today & it’s been so interesting to hear everyone’s opinion of painting it. I’m not sure what to do yet, but I’m kinda loving it like this right now. Plus this gem is 100+ years old & still in great condition, so I’m thinking maybe she deserves to be left alone, right?! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Happy weekend buddies!! 😘 #liketkit
