Vintage Tools Turned Artwork by Sandra Mackintosh

The heck with cleaning, we like our tools on display. We're not sure whether to categorize these careful arrangements by sculptor Sandra Mackintosh as antiques or artwork, but either way they serve as excellent inspiration for starting and showing off our own vintage folk object collection.

The collections are available through Mackintosh's shop, East Market Street Antiques on VandM.com, though the rare pieces are pricey. Browse her array of everyday items from yesteryear displayed and grouped as if they belong in a museum (which surely they do) and it's hard not to imagine creating similar DIY vignettes in our own space.
