My Newest Inspirational Shop – Revival Antiques & Accessories

When Courtney (The Joy of Decorating) organized the Raleigh group for I <3 Thrifting Day she took us to an “off the beaten” path shop. Tucked into an industrial zone off Capital Blvd. in Raleigh, you would miss it unless you were specifically looking for it.

Here are just a few of the inspirational photos I took on my visit to Revival Antiques & Accessories:

Old bead board or flooring pieces cut, painted and turned into a coat rack!


A pendant light made from corrugated cardboard!

Here’s a closer look at the cardboard.

Give me chippy paint or give me death! Okay, I know I’m being dramatic, but I seriously love anything rustic with chipping paint.

Decorative scroll embellishment on an armoire.

Just think how easy these ampersand pillows would be to make!

Hello, does this vignette remind you of Miss Mustard Seed? Me too.

Painted and numbered chippy buckets.

Another scale and a buggy wheel. Makes my wheels churn thinking what I could make with it.

I just love the detail on this drawer pull (and of course the chippy paint.)

Bare wire framed pendants are very popular right now.

I think I like the pendant even more because of the antique light bulb.

Antique cameras are sculptural and easy to decorate with.

I spotted this shelf made from old shutters.

Or you could turn an old shutter into a coat rack.

This armoire is too stunning for words!

If I owned this dresser, her name would be buttercup.

Old typewriter keys are just graphic goodness.

This tool caddy is adorable, but I bet it would be easy to make. I think I could use Julie’s (Follow Your Heart Woodworking) tool caddy tutorial that appeared on Funky Junk Donna’s.

A cute little nook shelf. Complete with (you guessed it) chippy paint and beadboard.

This birdcage photo display gives me a few ideas. How about you?

2nd only to chippy paint, I love blue bottles!

Little antique crates can be found everywhere at ReVival Antiques.

A buoy birdhouse! How adorable.

{Yawn!} That’s it for today, I’m ready for my cat nap.

    looks amazing! I may have to make a trip to Raleigh to go there ~and to visit with you 🙂

    Did they have lots of “my color” bottles and jars? I heard your voice saying “NO!” when I bought two new ones in Asheville last week!

    Wow! That little dresser you would call “buttercup”..my mom has almost the exact same one. Creamy white and buttercup yellow, the key holes, down to the same distressed pulls! Strange.
    Very cute place!

    I have lots of those little shutters if you want one to make a shelf out of and then do a tutorial and teach all of us how to make one 🙂
