Antique Shopping for the Barnhouse

Hello!!
It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to update on our progress, but as you can see the barnhouse exterior is nearing completion. Charming in its new coat of red and white don't you think?


We are also close to finishing the interior and within the next several weeks I'll be sharing photos of the completed and furnished rooms!  As busy as as we have been making the long distance trek each weekend to work on this little place, I have managed to pop by my favorite antique shops for a few new interior pieces.

Some of the antique pieces are from a shop I recently discovered that has a history of acquiring pieces from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Russia. Here are a few of my favorites-



 I bought this hungarian spice rack from the shop owners personal collection. I must have a few more of these, they are lovely when displayed together. They are now on my wishlist! (that was a hint Tom)!

This beautiful rust colored armoire came home with me.  This piece is from the Czech Republic and dates back to the 1890's.  We plan to use it in our family room.





I love this enormous hungarian chest of drawers.  This dark oak is beautiful against our white bedroom walls.



This darling pine table is also hungarian- I didn't buy it at the time and I'm secretly hoping no one else has! I've come up with the perfect place for it if it's still available.


This teak chair is a bit quirky, and will be perfect in a bedroom.



I thought this old Russian cupboard would look great painted black- I didn't buy for the barnhouse, but wish I had a place for it somewhere.


and more beautiful pine from the Czech Republic






At another one of my favorite shops I found this pair of bentwood chairs- perfect for a small dining table.


and these art books were an absolute find!   I am thrilled with these:)   I plan to have several of the reprints framed for the barnhouse.






I look forward to sharing interior photos with you soon!  Thank you for following along!

  1. Beautiful pieces, Sarah. Your rust painted armoire is charming - love its pediment top! I can't wait to see all your new old treasures in situ. And Sarah, you need to go back for that oval pine table. It has such an unusual form - very high country. Thanks for the update, my friend. Sending you warm greetings all the way from DC :)

  2. PS - Each time I see the little pine cone covered in moss and lichen, I think of you :) I'm enjoying it very much!!! Thank you!

  3. I love your new barnhouse! Congratulations to you & Tom for such a great job. The vineyards are to die for, as is the furniture. Can't wait to see the inside.
    Happy Holidays,
