Decorating with found objects | For the love of junk.
I wanted to show you some amazing images I found when I was researching the whole 'decorating with industrial or found objects" theme that I have been obsessing about this week. I don't know exactly what it is about this style that I love so much but I think that it has something to do with the fact that I love a good treasure hunt! It's so exciting to find a cool vintage object that you can rescue from its original usage and then showcase it as an objet d'art. It makes your space so much more personal and unique. I specifically love oversized, whimsical items like vintage signage, toys, sports memorabilia like paddles and bowling pins. Anything with type or giant letters on it is really fun too. Vintage fans are great because their blades look  so industrial - like propellers. Anyway I hope you enjoy these examples of decorating with found objects . . .

Great photos! I did this in college (decorate with found stuff) b/c I was broke. But I had the chicest apartment! My most cherished find was a 50's style dining table in the parking lot of my apartment building. I spray painted it bronze and all of my college buddies were sooo jealous! ;)
