Western Auto was a specialty retail that supplied auto parts and accessories. Also was known for selling Western Flyer bicycle. I remember back in the 70’s, when I was a little girl, my mom used to shop for auto parts for her car. While waiting for her, I had to look at the bikes. My eyes were all over. Wow! Nice bicycles. I have never had one of these bicycles as a kid. But now there are some in our vintage collection at The Vintage Lab. Later on I will add in the gallery additional images of the different ones we are working on.
Nous aimons nos animaux de compagnie, pas de doutes à ce sujet. Mais quand il vient aux animaux et la décoration de la maison, il ya quelque chose qui ne vont pas de pair. Nous avons toujours donné notre animal de compagnie un endroit sûr et confortable pour se reposer. Litière pour animaux de compagnie traditionnelle n’offrait pas autant options de couleur ou de style que nous aimerions. Mais heureusement, en ces temps modernes, nous sommes en mesure d’offrir à nos précieux literie animaux d’être jaloux à ce sujet. Il ya tellement d’options à choisir la couleur, les styles, les matériaux et plus encore. Maintenant, vous n’avez pas à les cacher plus quand vous avez fini de recevoir des visiteurs.
Je voulais faire mon chien literie qui pourrait être chic et pratique. Mon chien aime à regarder les écureuils et les lapins à travers la fenêtre. Alors j’ai pensé que ça doit être grand pour atteindre la fenêtre. Et les choses les plus importantes, il doit y avoir une extension de mon décor. C’est à quoi il ressemble. Ta Daa!
We love our pets, no doubts about it. But when it comes to pets and home decor it is something that weren’t going hand by hand. We have always gave our pet a safe and comfortable place to rest. Traditional pet bedding didn’t offer as many color or style options we would love to. But luckily in these modern days, we are able to offer our precious pets a bedding to be jealous about it. There are so many options to choose from color, styles, materials and more. Now you don’t have to hide them any more when you have visitors.
I wanted to make my dog a bedding that could be chic and practical. My dog loves to watch the squirrels and rabbits through the window. So I thought it has to be tall to reach the window. And the most important things it has to be an extension of my home decor. This is what it looks like. Ta Daa!
You can use the space to store magazines or anything else
- Crate wooden box
- minwax wood finish stain classic gray
- paint brush, rag or foam brush
- set of caster wheels (with brakes)
- fine or medium sand paper (needed for rough wood)
I love my contemporary furniture. But I also like vintage decor. So, how to mix both style ? How to combine vintage with contemporary? These are the variables. The common denominator between the two of them is you, your ideas and the methods used as an unique factors.
Lets solve : Vintemporary
Modern contemporary + (Vintage x DIY)= Vintemporary
Vintemporary = ( Modern Contemporary + ( Vintage x DIY)
= ( Big Furniture Pieces + (Small Accessories/Decor x reupholster, re invent, re-use)
= sofa + (used mason jars x re purposed)
= sofa + table lamp
= the best of the past and your present
Another way to get a vintemporary style:
Ex. Upholstering a vintage chair with a contemporary fabric in bright colors or bold patterns… simply “vintemporary”.
The result of the formula reads: home decor is equal you. It is a combination of the best of your past and who you are at the present and what would be the reflection of your future.
What do you think? Could you put in practice Vintemporary styles. Do your homework and feel free to post a link of images that you consider pertaining to this topic. I would like to read your comments .

This is my new addition to our radio and accessories category.
It is called a SELECT A TENNA. If you haven’t seen some like it before, it is AM radio antenna from the 70’s.
The idea was to aid weak radio station so you could hear them better. I have not tried yet. But one thing I am sure about it, it does make a great addition to my decor. I am in tune with vintage!
“Off the chain”. expression meaning da bomb, really good, crazy, fantastic or awesome. Just like my vintage sign. I have made this sign for my husband. I have used a bicycle chain to spell out the word ” bike” and a couple of bicycle sprocket. There were glued using clear silicone on a reclaimed piece of wood that I got from inside of an old bicycle shop. Now it is placed at a wall as part of our vintage collection at The Vintage Lab. Nice isn’t it?
