I am addicted to France.
Somewhere in a previous life I was most definitely living in Paris, throwing my scarf over my shoulder and walking down cobblestone streets in high heels.
While I can’t be in Paris as much as I’d like – I can certainly bring Paris to me.
Which is why my addiction to thrift stores is also a good thing.
Because something I love to do is find art in weird things.
Now here is something people rave about when they visit my home.
(And that’s BEFORE they see what it really is.)
I found this gorgeous French picture about 20 years ago in a thrift shop.
It was jammed in with a bunch of other mirrors and old pictures.
When I pulled it out of the pile – my aunt said,
“Oh – that is not just a picture!”
And she walked over to it and did this:
And then this:
And Ta-Dah – here is what it turned into:
A Vintage Bridge Card Table.
I paid $20 for it and it’s hung on my walls ever since. And I’ve occasionally used it as a table too.
Now it is in my French bathroom so I can stare at it and dream of Paris from the bathtub.
Be creative with the art in your home – see the unusual in the ordinary.
(And make sure to comment and share something you use as art and the story behind it! Show me a pic too – we’d love to see it!)
