Homemade Vintage Artwork

We stopped by an indoor flea market not too long ago and picked up a page from a 1940 vintage magazine for $4. It's titled "Preoccupation" and it's an image of a woman getting ready for New Year's Eve 1941! We decided to pop it in a frame and use it as artwork for one of the bathrooms and spent under $10 for the total project, including the glossy white matted frame.




We also picked up these cute vintage postcards dating back to around 1910 (one of them even had even been mailed and there is writing on the back!). They were about $1 each, the green frame was on sale at Target for only $1.50, and the recycled wood frame is a HomeGoods find, on sale for $4.
