I am a huge fan of vintage home decor – namely wall hangings like mirrors and frames that accent a modern-feeling room. On my bedroom wall hangs a large oval mirror, vintage-inspired with its intricate edges and stressed antique coloring, that I picked up at a thrift store for $18. To me, having a vintage style doesn’t necessarily make me an antique collector or a retro decoart enthusiast. Instead I’d say I have an eye for old beauty that incorporates well with the clean lines and colors of modern decor.
Perusing through the Etsy web site, I found these vintage-inspired frames that can be filled with a large picture, mirror or decorative fabric.
More recently, I’ve been interested in the idea of creating my own wall art that may not be from the second-hand store, but definitely looks like a throwback item. Sometimes even the thrift store charges more than you want to spend on something that’s not even new. So why not touch-up a mirror or frame you have lying around your house? It’s a cheap and easy way to change up your home decor without spending a ton of money on new things. Check out this do-it-yourself vintage mirror at Favecrafts.com.
