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!
I have been married for 46
years. We have one wonderful daughter who lives in New York. I'm retired and it's wonderful to stay home and have more time to do the things i love. My favorite things are going treasure hunting at thrift shops, estate sales, garage sales. I love looking for old treasures, and bringing them back to life.
