Congratulations to Claire @ Pillar Box Blue!  


Claire, who blogs at Pillar Box Blue, wowed us all with her amazing mosaic wall planter, created with pieces of broken vintage china. What makes the project truly unique are halved teacups, perfect for holding small plants like the darling succulents you see here. The best part? She provides all the details to make one of your very own!

Vintage Charm Features of the Week:


Cecilia’s Pick 



I think most of us can relate to Lauren from Wonderfully Made and her attempt to avoid estate sales as she declutters her home. Fortunately, she couldn't resist stopping at the half price sale where she scored this charming Vintage Glove Box. At first, Lauren wasn't sure of the box's purpose, but purchased it because she was drawn to the intricate design. After a little research, she learned her new find is from the early 1900s, plus a very interesting back story, you'll enjoy reading for yourself. Pay Lauren a visit to get the details and see the rest of the vintage treasures she scored half price!





Sharon’s Pick




Lisa from Recreated Designs found an incredible vintage buffet for $20. She fell in love with its beauty and storage potential. The buffet turned out to be perfect for her home but she wanted to make it special. Lisa achieved her goal in a wonderful way. Her grandmother kept many cards and letters to and from her family over the years and Lisa decided to line the top drawer with them. The vintage buffet already captured her heart, but being able to see those letters each time she opens the drawer, makes it priceless to her. Visit Lisa and see how to  Use Cherished Letters to Make Old Furniture Special.

Kathleen’s Pick



When I first saw this incredible shabby chic globe over at Penny's Vintage Home, I thought to myself, "Where did she buy that? I want one too!" Little did I know that SHE MADE IT HERSELF! How have I not thought of this? Absolutely genius, Penny! It goes oh so beautifully with your travel-themed family room, but it could certainly stand alone as a great addition to any shabby chic decor collection. I'm sure your chalkboard globe was nice but this--is simply stunning. (Trust me, I NEVER use the word stunning.) Readers, be sure to stop by and see not only this beautiful globe, but the lovely family room as well. I will definitely be making one of these...

Debra from Shoppe No. 5 took a plain bed tray and gave it a fabulous upgrade, using a few simple materials she had on hand, like chalk paint and fabric--and just in time for Mother's Day, too! Was she giving her children a hint? Maybe, but she was also taking part in a regular Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge, along with over thirty other bloggers. Great project and helpful tutorial, too.
