6 Old World Textures

The way to my heart is antique shopping! I discovered a trend in the things I brought home and found 6 of my favorite old world antique textures to find.

Today, I’d like to share my six favorite textures that I look for when I go antique shopping for my home, along with some of my most recent finds for our new pole barn home.

1 – RAW OLD WOOD

This simple wood trivet, complete with dents and scuffs caught my attention right away. It’s perfect to use as a hot pad of sorts for our frequently used cast iron skillet.

2 – METAL WITH PATINA

How I adore a metal piece with signs of tarnish and wear. I’ll even try to replicate that look like I did on this new candelabra project. I’ve picked up several old metal pieces lately and am still working them into our new kitchen space.

3 – AGED POTTERY AND STONEWARE

I know collecting crocks is quite a fad right now, but I’ve always loved them – or any old pottery piece for that matter. The more signs of age and imperfection, the better.

4 – NUBBY LINENS

Beautiful textiles were my first love, and will likely be my last. My grandma passed on her love of fabric to me, and I find the nubbier – the better.

5 – CHIPPY PAINT

With fun paint applications, you can get a chippy paint look on just about any piece. But nothing beats a real, genuine piece of furniture with paint peeling off from years of neglect – try as I might!
