1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Vintage His and Hers Bedroom Wall Art for less than $20 on: April 18, 2008 10:06:03 AM
So I'm all about saving money, especially when it comes to artwork.  Recently while at an antique mall I fell in love with the stacks of vintage magazine ads and covers.  I picked up these two ads. that I thought would be perfect as his and hers bedroom wall art for around $5 each.  The frames were bought at a thrift store for $3 each.  I was lucky enough to find a matching pair, and painted them with some leftover spray paint.

 

The ads. were slightly under 11x14 so I placed some matching scrapbook paper behind it. 

Go check out your local antique store!  My local Brass Armadillo Antique Mall has rows and rows of old magazine ads and covers sorted by topic.  I also picked up a few others, an old PBR beer ad for over the bar and some food ads for the kitchen.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pretty Pink Floral Purse on: March 12, 2008 07:05:23 AM
This is my first post...a purse made of several cheapo floral prints.  When I finished it I decided it was missing something, so I was adventurous and made my own applique instead of buying one of the fancy ones you see in the stores.









I just discovered Craftster the other day and have become an addict since.  It's so nice to have found a community of creative people to share ideas with and get inspiration for new projects!

Any comments, criticisms, suggestions welcome!  Thanks for looking Smiley
