Southern Accents Architectural Antiques

shabby creek cottageHappy Transformation Thursday! It’s that one day each week were we all get together to give each other atta girls (or boys) for getting something done! Everyone is welcome to link up their DIY projects, crafty goodness, recipes and more at the bottom of this post – no matter if it’s your very first time joining or you’ve been hanging out with me each months for years. You can find the link up at the bottom of this post

Usually I feature some of the best posts from the previous party – but this week is an exception. I have an AMAZING giveaway for you… but first let’s take a little look see at a recent trip I took. Last week the mister and I celebrated our anniversary – so we took a day off to just goof off and hang out together. We did a little driving, a lot of shopping and enjoyed spending a whole day of pretty much doing nothing. When we were wandering around, we found ourselves in Cullman, AL at a shop I’d been wanting to see forever, Southern Accents Architectural Antiques. 

It was like a dream land of awe-inspiring, jaw dropping, heavenly finds for a junk lover like me. 

Rows and rows of lovely, chippy, antiquey stuff. 
Drawers full of pulls, knobs, hooks and all things addictive.
And then… when I thought I’d soaked up all the divine-ness of it all…. there was another building. 
So we went out the back and up the stairs. 
And the wonders of my world just kept going. 
We found salvage wood & pieces that would make your heart skip a beat!
Once I’d ooohhhed and aahhhhed for way too long, Mr. SCC said, “Did you see the stuff outside?” WHAT?!?! Yes, there was even more!
A long line of over-loved tubs, ready to be brought back to life again…

Sinks in every shape and size.
Then I found a huge lot of metal fire place surrounds…
I didn’t have my measurements (because I had NO idea that I’d find one) but I’m definitely going back to scoop up one of these beauties!
Metal and iron work for days.
See…. it’s a dream world, right? If you live anywhere in the southeast – you have to make time to go and visit! Be sure to block out a good chunk of time, because you’ll be wandering around forevah like I did 🙂
And – if you can’t make it there – I have good news: They have a WONDERFUL website – as well as a blogI love it when old and new come together! 
Speaking of new, if you want to see all the new lovelies that they have coming in, be sure to visit them on Facebook often (go ahead and give it a like… you know you wanna!) If you do stop in to shop – make sure that you “check in” while you’re there. If you show them at the register that you’ve checked in via Facebook, they’ll give you 10% off your order. Love that!

Sooooooo……. whatcha got? I wanna see – and so does everybody else! Please put your PERMALINK into the linky – and link back here so everyone can find all the great ideas. Please, please, PLEASE – pretty please DO NOT LINK TO A SHOP!!! Be sure to visit your neighbors and have fun – it is a party after all. *Please note: If you link up you are giving me permission to use your photos on my blog without contacting you (don’t worry, it’s only to show off your beautiful stuff!)* 

REMEMBER: To be featured on the Facebook page or Transformation Thursday Pinterest Board – you must have the link directly in your post. You can still link up with a link back on your party page or sidebar, but to get featured you must link in the post, m’kay? 


Ready? Set? GOOOOO!!!!

  20. Now I’ve had time to go visit Southern Accents Facebook page. I personally like the antique Coca Cola box but I know my husbands favorite would be that antique drill press. He was looking at the picture of it explaining to me how it all would work if all the pieces were there. He used to run a drill press machine in a fab show many, many moons ago when he was younger.

  21. Thanks so much for hosting! Hope you have a great week! I remember going to a cool place kind of like that when we visited Minneapolis once. I think it was called Art and Architecture. So many fun things to feast your eyes upon.
    Blessings,
    Nici

  80. The ironworks section on their website is my fave…I have dreams of gorgeous headboards.

  81. I love their FB post (links to pinterest) about shutters! I have also visited their website and my favorite section is the doors. Swoon!!!!! I have also pinned this giveaway. I really want to win. Parke062@gmail.com

  82. I’ve been to this awsome place…….years ago, but loved it. I found an old acorn newel post ornament and some pieces for my antique footed tub. And, you’re right, you can spend hours there.
    I’ve just tweeted about the giveaway. Going back up to visit their webpage. Hope to see you this weekend in Pulaski!!! And, good luck over there with your booth.

  83. I already follow them on Facebook. Those chippy white Italian Double Doors are AWESOME. Love them!!!

  84. As an architectural historian, Southern Accents is like heaven to me!! I go there every chance I get (I live south of Birmingham). Their selection is unmatched. I love looking at all the doors! If I ever get my dream historic house and need an interior or exterior period door, it’s the place to go! There is a new place in Bessemer (west of Birmingham) called The Architectural Depot. They have some pretty cool stuff, too, that I have seen on Facebook but haven’t had the chance to get out there yet.

  85. Just visited Southern Accents’ webpage. Do I have to pick one section that I like most??? It would probably be a tossup between the door section and the window section. But, then I do love the ironworks section…and the antique bath fixtures. Oh, and of course, I love the antique lighting. Too much to choose just one.

    NOW, PICK ME, PICK ME. I could use that $100 gift certificate.

    Going back up now to link up to your party. THANKS FOR HOSTING, GINA.

  86. New to this blogging thing-would appreciate any views or new followers, and comments/advice! -I linked up the Blueberry Cream Cheese Wafflewich. Such great ideas on here! Love it! 🙂
