Vintage Cubbie & Halloween Inspiration

When I first saw the new fall catalog from Pottery Barn, I just took a big, deep sigh. Oh how I love them! Their stylist are amazing and thier new focus on 'vintage' is just beautiful! I have been all about vintage lately...adding in vintage benches and little vintages pieces bought from consignment stores and etsy...vintage modern is definetly my new passion!

I love anything that is similar to vintage lockers, apothecary cabinets, little drawers and cubbies and fun places to store and display little treasures. So when I came upon this amazing vintage inspired cubbie in the catalog, I was instantly smitten...and then quickly placed my order. 

Now, the dilemma of how to decorate this beautiful piece! It has been put up on the wall that you see as soon as you walk downstairs into our main family room. I love the way that it loI've got some ideas that I'm hoping to get done here soon...right now, I've placed just little things in the cubbies to visualize and get an idea of what I want. I'll share pictures of my progress soon.

Some other fun vintage inspired pieces at Pottery Barn:

Skeleton Keys

Found Thread/Wooden Spools (although I think these are over priced)

Galvanized Metal Collection: Chalkboard Cabinet, canister, and this super cute serving piece (I love how they decorated this for Halloween - so inspiring!)

Canvas Typewriter Prints 

Floor Standing Pinboard
