Rustic Love & White Wednesday

Rustic farm table and reclaimed wood are part of my kitchen at the Dior home



I mixed the dark reclaimed wood with the white wood


its a perfect marriage with my table that

I got from Sue's Boy Bryce



pieces of this wall are all part of things that belong to my

heart. Some of the planks are from my grandfathers shed

some are from Bryce and others are salvaged wood

that Mr. Dior & I found together

my son used his wood working skills to build this mirror

out of 2.00 salvaged white fence post that I picked up at an estate sale



we are still working on the handicap bath for my mama




Salvaged Shutters at Country Roads




there are pairs and sets of three available



the patinas are amazing



white potting bench with vintage bowl



Mr Dior just finished some wonderful industrial pieces

and many new items arriving by Friday



leaving you with this beautiful vignette by Christina

dealer # 64 at Country Roads


Please join the lovely Kathleen





Much love to all of you

OMGoodness Kate...I have to say I was at Brimfield today and so many of the displays I saw made me say to myself...they must read Kate's blog!! You are such an inspiration!

Ah Ms. Kate your reclaimed wood is BEAUTIFUL. I wish I knew someone that had a barn like that. You're blessed to have wood that was your grandfather and also that you have Mr. Dior to build such beautiful pieces for you. My Mr. Hubby is a computer guy, not very good with building things. My Daddy, God rest his soul, did that for me. Anyhoo, my dear I will be jonesing for you shutters ; )
Till your next post ~
Hugs ~ Deanna

Beautiful photos...I especially love the look of the B&W photos against the old wood...

All That Jazz said...

The old wood is great! My Farmboy has an old homestead on his property and he tore off some wood to make barnwood frames and mirrors. We got busy but I hope to have him make more for the shop and for me, I want him to do a headboard, too! ;-)
Have a happy week sweet girl!

I LOVE your post and not quite sure how I missed it this past week! Must be because it was in the middle of my babysitting duties. I too love the old wood. It just seems like its got its own story to tell!

Take care, Sue
