Wall to Wall or Off the Wall

Here at The Rusty Shingle residence, rustic prevails. Have any of you ever heard of Paul Detlefsen? Most people probably don’t recognize his name but they might remember some of his pictures from their childhood, perhaps on Grandma and Grandpa’s walls. I’m not saying that we are old folk, just that we have an appreciation for the idea of the simplicity of by-gone days.

We have seven Detlefsen’s on our walls at this time. There are many available on Ebay and Etsy if you would like to join us in collecting this artist’s vintage prints.

We have a Pinterest board of Detlefsen, for your perusal.

Thanks for Reading!

That last is how we got our name, The Rusty Shingle. Jim had been hired to tear down an old homestead and he came home with these lovely, rusty, dusty tin shingles. “What can we do with these?” he asked. We can build a business with them. And thus, The Rusty Shingle was born.
