Just make a nice visit to some flea markets and yard sales near your home. You will only spend a little money to get some interesting stuff to decorate your home with the vintage touch. If you have no ideas about things to do after the purchase, we have some ideas to inspire you.
1. Play With The Color
Buying old items will look good and fresh if you add a little paint. Just spray some items in bold look and check out how it can add more colors to your room.
2. Vintage Candelabras
We think that candles are relaxing. It is reasonable if we love candles. Nevertheless, if you think that your old candle holders have a boring look, it is the time to use the old chandelier. Once you turned it upside down, it will be a nice candelabra.
3. Display Coffee Mugs
As you see here that you can even use the old battery rack just to create a beautiful display of your favorite coffee mugs.
4. Decorate Your Room
The best thing about decorating a room is that you can even fill up the area with the flea market items. Every time you walk around your room, you are like walking in the part. What to do is to stack some old trays, display figurines, display vintage items, and unusual covers and others.
5. Have Fun in the Bathroom
You can even use a large vintage can just to replace the garbage can. Other than that, you can even use the old soda cooler to replace your sink.
There is a lot of brilliant ways to organize your space so everything looks clean and tidy. For example, you can use the milk bottles, Mason jar, vases, pencil holders, and others.
Use old shutters to create artistic decoration.
8. Add Shelving
Use old boards to create awesome vintage shelves for books, knickknacks, and more.
9. New Uses for Old Doorknobs
You can find some really beautiful old doorknobs, which can be used as coat hangers, picture holders, curtain hooks, and more.
10. Window Art
Hang old windows as artwork. If you have an old French door, you can hang it sideways, add a few coat hooks, and fill the sections with your favorite photos.
11. Dining Room Décor
Use an old water filter to create a unique accent piece in your dining room.
12. Anything Goes for Candles
You can turn just about anything into a candle holder with a bit of imagination. Try using a meat grinder for an interesting dining table display, or use deep fryer baskets for outdoor luminaries.
13. Playing Games
If you have old board games, they make really cool artwork for your walls, and you don’t have to worry if you are missing any pieces.
14. Kitchen Storage
Use a vintage grocery store scale instead of baskets for storing fruit and bread.
15. Create Storage Space
Old suitcases are great for storing things you aren’t currently using. They can be used for filing, craft supplies, and more.
16. Hang a Bottle Opener
You can have a boring bottle opener sitting in your cutlery drawer, or you can have a cool, vintage opener attached to a wall, or better yet, to a vintage wooden table.
17. Crate Drawers
Place old wooden crates on shelves, and voila, instant drawers for storage.
18. Keep Magazines Neat
Use an old apple-pickers pouch to keep magazines in one place. This is also a great place to keep remote controls.
19. Eliminate Clutter
A vintage tool box is ideal to use as a spice jar rack. Another idea is to use a toolbox as a desk organizer.
20. Play with Old Toys
While many old toys are expensive, damaged ones are pretty cheap. Use old toy trucks as a holder for the TV remote, or turn game pieces into fridge magnets. This is your chance to have fun with your creativity.
