Our Favorite Pinterest Things #4

Something I just can't get enough of is chippy paint. Chippy paint EVERYTHING! If my whole house could be chippy paint, I would love it, and probably wouldn't want to "fix" it. If you are a antique lover, or "junker" as some of us call it, you may have seen old, chippy mantels around the local antique malls. They are very popular, and often have a high price on them as they are in high demand. The chippy patina that they often have is one that if the person is buying it, they usually are buying it for that, instead of buying it to change it - thank god!

Here is a collection of some AMAZING vintage mantels I found on Pinterest. Just a reminder that I am featuring these pins/blogs just because I LOVE what I saw. I am not receiving anything for doing this. If you click on the picture, it will take you to their blog. (Source) takes you to the pin so you can pin it as well. I have said a blurb about these above the pic, in which you can find links to their posts and blog as well.

I must say, that the Homeless Finch did an AMAZING job restoring this mantel. They took it from "WHAT?!" to OMG (in a good way!), and I am just inspired by their awesome work!

I really want to hang out in the Sweet Pea Home dining room. She has chippy everything, just like I like it! 

I wish I knew whose piece this is, I only see that it was pinned and can't find where from. So if anyone recognizes it, please let me know and I will credit them. Isn't the detail amazing?! 

White Dress Events featured this BEAUTIFUL mantel. All I can say is WOW!  

Obviously you can tell that I am HOOKED in on Pinterest. One of the reasons I LOVE it, is that we can all love and appreciate each others work. I am more than glad that Pinterest was created, and I hope you enjoy these vintage mantels!
