Decorating With Antique Breadboards

A Stroll Thru Life
When I did my 2016 Fall Home Tour I had quite a few new visitors and a ton of questions about the breadboards I decorate with in my kitchen.  A few years ago I did a post about French Antique Breadboards and it went viral.  Seems like a lot of us like breadboards and collect them in all kinds of style, sizes and shapes.  I see them being used all over the house in decor.

My kitchen mini makeover that I did this summer went from dark and cluttered to light and simple.  Breadboards were the perfect choice for my decor.

If you have visited here for a while, then you know that this is really pared down and sparse for me.

Before -       (See what I mean.  This was before I painted and purged.)

I kept the counter decor pretty light too.

On the left side of the stove I keep my napkins and the paper towel holder, so I also like to have a little vignette to go with them.  I adore this pig breadboard and I use it all the time, so being able to easily reach it is perfect.  It is so fun with my pig napkin holder too.

 This corner is one of my favorite places of all to play.  This was a breadboard that I found years ago and you can tell it has really been used a lot.

  Paired with an old wooden rolling pin it makes a nice statement.

The space above the fridge is quite tall since we have 9' ceilings and the cabinets here are standard size.  I needed a large space to display my French Antique Breadboard and my WW11 Ammo Basket.  I paired them with my Cow silhouette and my Amish Wood Rooster.  The small heart handle breadboard was a gift from a very dear friend over 30 years ago.  It is one of my most treasured items.

 Kind of an eclectic combination but I think it works.

That Ammo basket use to sit on the floor, but I like it so much better above the cabinets.

Here are a few examples of how others use theirs 

I love to see how others display theirs, but I think I will keep mine simple for now.

 So, do you hang yours on the wall, or do you use them in vignettes and do you really use them like I do?

Be sure to get all your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.
