Welcome back to the Vintage Inspiration Party!
The VIP is the place to share anything old, treasured, passed-down or tattered, but you can also share projects that were made to look old, including repurposed and upcycled creations.

My Vintage Life found some beautiful treasures at an antique fair. 

Charm Bracelet Diva updated this beautiful vintage bird cage.

Simply Vintageous covered three large cardboard boxes with burlap, then added some cute chalkboard tags.

Papillon Creations shared this dry brushed wine barrel from her Facebook page.  The addition of the French graphic is so pretty.

One More Time transformed an old coffee table into this unique farmhouse hall tree.

Chic By Tab shared a real simple tutorial on how she made this bathtub shelf with scrap lumber.

This week's featured shop item is from A Familiar Past.

Link Party Guidelines
- You are welcome to share anything vintage or vintage inspired. This includes yard sale finds, repurposed and upcycled creations, family heirlooms - including vintage Etsy & Ebay items you have for sale! If it’s been around awhile or just looks that way…share away!! No food links please.
- Pin away, but please be sure to pin directly from the original source, not from my blog.
- Be sure to have a visible link to VILLABARNES within your post (text link is fine).
- By linking up with the Vintage Inspiration Party, you agree that your photos and links may be shared on Pinterest, Facebook, and other social media sites. You may be included in a round up to promote the party or individually with a link back to you. We love what you share and the extra exposure is a benefit to everyone.

  7. Love the bar door hall tree .... Do I see a strong trend around the corner with everyone wanting one of their own? I think so me included. I would love to put one in my office make wone that has storage at the bottom as well, and maybe hang an old mirror on it and foil it with stands of garland and stockings for the holidays.

    Love all you inspire her Rosemary.
