It's no secret that I love vintage decor but sometimes I am not sure how to use some accessories without making my home look dated. Then I came across this photograph in the April issue of Chatelaine magazine:
A runner made from vintage doilies. I LOVE IT. It is such a fresh and stylish take on a rather dated item. I have had a collection of doilies in storage for years and now I am so excited to bring them out and make this.
I was so inspired that I searched far and wide and found these other stylish ways to use your grandmother's doilies:
This idea is presented as holiday decor but I would do this for a summer party too. Wouldn't they look pretty blowing in a breeze?
My mother had two velvet cushions with doilies sewn on the front in our living room when I was growing up. I love this modern take on a doily covered pillow.
This wedding dress makes me want to have another wedding. I love the pop of green peeking through. So feminine and pretty.
How about using doilies to make a light fixture? Fun!
So, what do you think? Would you use doilies as decor?
