I was browsing around a garage sale a few weeks ago, and I came across a big box of blueprints! I've never seen blueprints at a garage sale before, but I guess they just wanted to get rid of them. I thought to myself what can I do with blueprints??? I had no Idea at the time what I would do with them. I usually buy stuff nobody wants. well, as I was sitting in my office looking at the box of dusty blueprints I figured out how I could use them! Sometimes It takes me awhile, but I usually can come up with something, but not always.A lot of my projects I tossed In the trash, and I really did toss them!! I can really aim good now. I just hope the neighbors can't see me:))
My office is painted moss green. It's the only room In the house that's painted in a dark color. This blueprint dates back to 1949. Yikes I'm older then this blueprint!!
I had a pack of artist canvas that I bought for a project that I never started, so I used them for two more blueprints.I just glued them on.
The blueprints were folded up so the creases will never come out, but I think It gives It more character.
I bought this picture at the thrift shop. The frame was perfect for the blueprint. Someone made this frame using solid wood. Who ever made this did a good job!
