I’m sure we can all have a good go at creating a modern interior with modern styles and trends. We can all buy a bunch of materials and tools and get to work on a brand new untouched space and finish with a masterpiece. However, what if you’re looking to create a more vintage look rather than a modern one? How can you create that antique look yourself? I did a bit of research online in an attempt to figure out for myself and for this blog just how can I create a vintage look for my interior of my house whilst using some of the things I fund around the home and here are some of the things I found.

Pallet Ceiling

This was something I found online that really interested me and got me thinking, “Could I do this in my home”. It gives an interior a really unique look whilst the wood pallets give the ceiling a vintage theme. I found this great article detailing exactly how it can be managed so I’ve linked it here you can all read as well. Could I do this myself? Hmmmmm probably not, it looks a bit too advanced for my DIY skills, however, I’m sure I could get some outside help to help achieve this look!

Hanger Skills

This one is far simpler than the pallet ceiling option but still I like this small concept. Simply get a couple of your old wooden hangers and style them in the bathroom. Turn them upside down and fix them to the wall to create instant towel racks or bathrobe holders. Simple but so yet effective.

Small Pallet Wine Rack

Ok maybe my love for wood is showing here but I just loved the idea of this. Getting a small pallet, or a larger one and cutting it down to size, mounting it on the wall and using it as a wine rack is a nice little way of having something unique and original in your room. You could even use the bottom of the pallet as a glasses holder to put all your wine drinking items in one place. My idea of perfection!

Antique Additions

Finally after researching this for a while I thought, you know what I could try to create these things myself, but in the end it probably won’t look as good as the pictures and article shown! That’s not a problem for me because whilst I’m not the best at DIY, I think the odd thing here and there with a few pieces of vintage furniture dotted around the room could combine to make one hell of a design! What do you think? Does any of this interest you as much as it did me?

You know, I’ve done house removals for a lot of houses in Sydney and I’ve not seen some of these ideas used before! It’s really quite a unique thing to use hangers like this. I’d love to think about what other uniqque ways of using things in your house there are!
