Decorating with Vintage Skis & Antique Sporting Goods

Posted on February 12, 2016 by Judy Rom

Vintage skis, poles, snow shoes, skates and sleds are some of the most-loved items at Ski Country Antiques & Home. We consider these pieces to be decorative staples and the charm that they bring to your decor is immeasurable! We especially love that there are so many options to style these antique sporting goods. Here are a few of our favorite ways:

Keep it classic - they look amazing mounted horizontally on a wall.

Alternatively, you could cross the skis for a gorgeous living room backdrop.

The collectors among us will love this next idea; build a collection over time and hang them as colorful wall art.

Vintage skis can look especially lovely when re-purposed. Add a few hooks to build a coat rack.

We think this idea looks especially darling for a child's room or nursery.

We are also quite partial to the gorgeous ski hall trees that we custom build in-house. No two are the same!

Antique toboggans are also wonderful pieces to accessorize your home with. We added shelves to this one to make use of the vertical space.

This toboggan turned bench is so clever! A perfect addition to the end of a bed.

Vintage sleds are also great decor pieces. Here's a great idea; mount one to your ceiling and hang your pots and pans from it!

Vintage snow shoes can simply be hung on a wall or if you want to get creative, make them into a pair into rustic wall sconces.

We also have an impressive collection of vintage ski poles. What will you do with yours? Maybe turn a few into a tripod lamp?
