Back in the frontier days, cowboys used to roam the dusty, tumbleweed-swept range with beautiful leather saddles and classic wooden stirrups. After years of aiding their riders as they galloped across fields, along creeks and over streams, these simply-crafted stirrups developed warm patinas and time-worn charm. While wood is no longer the material of choice for stirrups today, these beauties have found new life and purpose as decorative accessories in the home.
Here are my three favorite ways to use a vintage wooden stirrup:
1. Place one on your kitchen or dinner table and fill it with beautiful vintage cloth napkins.
2. Hang or set out on the counter in the bathroom and add a guest towel.
3. Use in the kitchen with a dishtowel.
Georgia's is stocking up on stirrups; we'll have one-of-a-kind relics from the past available soon!
