Decorating with Heirlooms: Vintage Scale
This Vintage Scale was tucked away in an attic, forgotten about for decades. Here’s how I took this vintage piece and added it to my home.
I love finding old, rusty items and adding them to our fresh new decor.
But when they come from. my family’s past, it makes it even better!
Trent and I were rummaging through my in-laws attic, looking for some of his childhood toys when we stumbled upon this beauty.
Vintage green, rusty and chippy.
I was instantly in love!
The scale no longer works, but I thought it would be a beautiful piece to add to our Farmhouse kitchen.
On top, I placed fruit in my Munising Wooden Bowl (which I found at an estate sale for $5).
