This weekend, while exploring at the Sleepy Poet with a fab MoS friend, I stumbled upon a vintage ceramic faux bamboo umbrella holder. Umbrella stands are not only functional, but they are such a fun accessory for your entryway!
Here are some of our favorites:
We love these tall tin buckets from the Macbeth Collection. We wouldn't choose the pink and green paisleys shown here, but we do love some of their more modern graphic patterns. And monogram it!
We have mixed feelings about these stands, and that may be because we aren't fond of the green and orange color combo shown in the picture. If you take each piece individually, though, the grommets and crocodile embossed leather can be fun. Right?!
You know about our obsession with faux bamboo, and this stand is no exception! The color is a little greenish on our computer, so we'd like to see this in real life to see if it's good as/is or if it needs to be painted.
We love the clean lines and interesting style of this brass umbrella stand! We'll admit it would be better for dry umbrellas than wet ones, but it really is a great way to add some visual interest to your entryway!
And here is the stand I found at the Sleepy Poet for $30! I love the bamboo and rattan detailing. I am not crazy about the color, so I will probably paint it, maybe black or white. Anyone have any tips for painting ceramic or porcelain?
Do you have an umbrella stand in your home? Which is your favorite?
