Venturing into Vintage Rental

On a small scale, I'm planning to venture into the vintage rental business in the upcoming year.  I have so many pieces that I love, cannot use in my smaller home, but I cannot bring myself to sell. Why not offer them for rent for events or photography shoots?  My first step is to inventory my pieces and get some marketing photos scheduled.

Fresh Flower Arrangement

I found an old drawer and some very old glass bottles - you know the kind, they have calcifications and rust spots inside that you just cannot wash out.  I painted both the bottles and drawer with parchment white craft paint that is okay to use on glass. It covered up the stains well.  I distressed the bottles and placed them inside the drawer.  I formed the fresh flower arrangment around them, tucking peonies, roses, mint sprigs in. Then I put long spikes of wild indigo in each bottle.
