Finds for My Vintage Inspired Office

I've been talking about updating my home office for a few months now but, I'll be honest, I just haven't made any progress.

Well, a couple of weeks ago I found an awesome piece that is going to be the centerpiece of my makeover and hopefully help jumpstart me into getting the project started.  I can't show you the piece just yet because it was too big to fit in my vehicle and I'm waiting to borrow a friend's truck to get it home.  But I can tell you it is a wonderful, old wood furniture piece with 25 drawers!

Part of my plan for the office makeover is to add more vintage touches so I've been collecting a few things that will eventually make their way into the room.

A vintage desk calendar.
Old paper cutters.
Pencil sharpeners.
Fountain pens.
Metal typeset.
And vintage clipboards.
I have a few other surprises for the room and I can't wait to get started and see how it all comes together.
I'll be keeping you posted.

I'll be away from my computer for a few days….hope you all have a great week.

  12. Jane ... you have quite a nice collection for your office. Love the paper cutters. I once talked a friend into buying a big paper cutter at an estate sale that was in great condition and really cheap. ... then duh ... the light bulb came on ... just the perfect size for the table I was needing a top for. I guess I am a slow thinker. So, I am still looking for one big one. I know you are excited about your office ... I am too.

  13. I'm guessing a 5 X 5 card catalog. I have one (Gaylord Bros., 60 drawers) which is incredibly wonderful and useful. Check out my Card Catalog Pinterest board with all kinds of wonderful ones! http://www.pinterest.com/mpv61/card-catalogs/

  16. Why am I seeing a large vintage or antique roll-top desk as your piece of furniture? Either that, or a card catalogue from a library? Can't wait to see when you bring it home!
