Scavenging + Art + Design + HOUSE: Newburgh

Repurposed breadbox (office corner).

I found this old enamel and wood breadbox west of here in Montgomery, NY. It cleaned up nicely, and now it’s holding all of the various printer papers in our office. I’ve always liked the idea of having a breadbox, but I don’t eat enough bread to justify buying one!

The happy yellow Eames shell chair in the corner is also a dirt-cheap scavenged find. Above it is a silkscreened poster designed and printed by Robin Hendrickson. It’s a promotional piece for a hand-drawn font he created based on hockey jersey typography. We traded prints over a decade ago when we were in art school together, and I’ve just now gotten around to putting it in a frame!

    I’ve really been enjoying your blog. I stumbled upon it through desiretoinspire last week. I love your decorating style and how you are so resourceful with your vintage finds & DIY skills. We, along with our two kids, are living in a 1000 sq. ft. home which we will be putting on the market this summer. I can’t wait to face similar challenges filling up a bigger home! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I am always just so amazed by the little vignettes and pieces in your apartment. The bread box is such a wonderful find and I love the little toy on top of it. Nice poster as well!

    You clever girl; a holder for printer paper! That’s one of the most stylish bread boxes I’ve ever seen. The colour of the wood is lovely.
