A shoestring budget needs not to be hiccup when it comes to style update, especially if you have vintage home décor in mind. What actually is a vintage style? By its true definition, vintage décor is all about taking something old and converting it into something new, vibrant and functional, with a little bit of creativity. You can recreate the same old magic by ordering the same from the thrift stores. And a chandelier one or two won’t hurt anyone. Here are some ideas to get started:
Take benefit of wall space
Narrow weathered planks are the best way to experiment in case you have a small space. These planks act like a display ledges to hold your collection like figurines, artwork, souvenirs, etc.
Blend old with new
A new dining table can get a vintage look by adding lamps, cushions, rugs, chandeliers, art work for the room. Buy vintage dining table and complement it with modern day chairs to create a décor that is dramatic and vibrant.
Create a focal point
Pick a single piece of vintage furniture with distressed finish and match with contemporary home décor items that look stylish, unique and completely trendy.
Think about small details

Think about pallet shelves, vintage lamps, crystal chandeliers and clocks. Vintage add old worldly charm to your home décor that’s very unique and full of dramatic look.
Mix and match
You can buy mix and match collections from flea market and in this way you can give a distinct look to the room. Vintage book shelves, camera and telephones can be repurposed to add visual appeal to the room.
Buy statement pieces
