Vintage Magazines = Instant Art

Vintage Magazines have such amazing colors and artwork. My grandmother had saved several from the 30's. Although we didn't know why she had saved them, they must have meant something to her, otherwise she would have tossed them long ago.
So what do you do with something like this that you know was important to her? Treat it as a piece of art!

I used inexpensive document frames from Walmart and just left the cardboard backing off. How great are these? They even still have the postage marks from when they were mailed to her!

Other items that we used for creative art: old sheet music. Oma was a piano teacher for many years, and she has an awesome collection of music that is in great shape. What better way to honor that part of her life than to feature some of it in the room!
This room has undergone a lot of changes. To see the process so far, check out THIS post with lots more pictures!
