So.  What else could I do to add some instant age?

Enter vintage fabric!

I bought this very pretty table cloth today;

it started out as a flour sack in the 30’s.

Look at the sweet hand stitching at the hem!

Darling, right?

Very!

 And the red goes with our glass cabinet pulls:

And that cheerful blue is nearly identical to our ceiling!

My plans for them include sewing short tiers for here:

And possibly on the glass doors of this upper cabinet:

I know!  That’s a lot of curtains in just 1 room!

But wait!

I’m even toying with the idea of this:
