A few more elements to our "Vintage Travel" themed room. An old pew rack found on Ebay holds old travel brochures and road maps (remember road maps??) Our first guests already commented on how fun it was to read through these!
The desk was a Craigslist find -- 60.00 for the desk and chair. I had intended to paint them but I like the wood as is and the hardware has a nice vintage feel already.
This travel suitcase was a steal at $5.00 and for now is holding reading material.
On of my favorite Ebay finds was this old Seth Thomas travel alarm clock. It even came with the original box and instructions and actually still works!
I wanted to keep the window treatments simple so I just sewed up these valances but added some luggage strap material and sewed on these fantastic old bus tokens (also from Ebay) using red thread. The holes in the tokens made it easy to stitch them on.
Can you tell I've been having fun with this room?? And finally, one gratuitous photo of one very cute Cocker Spaniel. Ava approves.
