Looking for a unique way to display your vintage collections?
Grouped together, vintage collections of unique objects can be transformed from interesting to attention-grabbing. Whether your collections are quirky, sentimental, textural or simply color-driven, here’s a few display (and mounting) ideas that are easy to replicate in a home workshop.
Vintage 1940’s childrens wooden blocks are mounted on a custom steel base making them viewable from all sides.
These pairs of antique croquet posts are cleverly mounted in maple blocks painted blue. Clustered together, they’re a super display idea for a game room. This textural and nostalgic arrangement is a great conversation starter.
Three shelves of doorknobs is a lot more than I have to show off at the moment but I have saved some of the original circa 1925 door hardware from my rug shop and this picture has given me inspiration on how to group them together for maximum visual appeal.
Measuring between 12- and 20-inches, these cast iron shut-off wheel valves are color-popping funky finds. Great texture and original surfaces mounted on custom bases, they’re a unique score and perfect for the tool collector.
Mounted vertically on a wood ladder, the colors of vintage tin childrens beach sand pails look dramatic against their pure white surroundings. Graphic art has always been my favorite type of memorabilia to collect. This is an adorable and lively way to add color to a child’s room or a classic white beach cottage.
