VIF: Cubby Love

There's something about old cubby holders I find irresistible and totally inspiring, and I'm hoping on my shopping adventure in Arkansas with my mom this weekend that I might see a smallish one I could bring home and put on top of the bench in my foyer. I'd fill it with silver and ironstone (no big surprise around here) and other small treasures. I like the idea of small things tucked safely away, of the illusion of organization via the separated compartments, the history that might be attached to a cubby that held sorted mail or tools or general store goods. The above is Pottery Barn, and I like it very much, but there's just something so much better about coming across a true vintage treasure...

Like many I'm also drawn to mix of old wood and galvanized metal. I have a few cubbies already, several in my craft room just right for scrapbook paper and mismatched drawers tucked in holding supplies and odds and ends. But there's plenty of room in my house for more cubby love, I'm thinking...


Happy Vintage Inspiration Friday, Debra! Hope your new booth here in town (on our side of town, no less!) is coming together and doing well for you...
