The IDEAL Vintage Sign

Pin It

I loooooooove vintage signs! With this sign, I've made added one more to my 12 examples of vintage signs in contemporary decor.


This one has been stashed in the junk shed for a while...waiting for the right spot.


With the addition of this new settee, which replaced an armoire and two chairs in the living room, there was finally wall space for this gigantic piece.


It came from an old grocery store on Ideal St. in Duluth, MN. I think it adds a bit of graphic punch to the room. You certainly can't miss it anyway. :)


I'm not sure if this location is the perfect spot for these pieces. Eventually, I'd like to do some horizontal planks or built-in shelving on this wall. For now, this vignette makes for the "ideal" home for my recent hourglass stenciled pillow cover project

  11. This sign really speaks to me right now. As a farmer, I wish everyone felt that they could/were buying groceries that way! So cool!
