Book Tuesday

This past weekend was a holiday here in Canada so my days are mixed up! This weekend I hit a few yard sales and of course! got some books. Some neat old french encyclopedias from 1936 with great pics and only $1.00 each! So the book today is called Flea Market Style by Jerri Farris and Tim Himsel. How appropiate since I got it at a yard sale for a quarter!

There are some really neat pics and projects in here. The first one is an old window frame and put a piece of wood in and paint it with blackboard paint and an old doorknob and use it as a wall greeter!

The next is an old panel wood door and take out the top panels and replace with a mirror. Then add a shelf and use in your front entrance.

Then an old mirror frame and replace with wood and cover with batting and fabric and ribbon and put back in and you have a neat memo board.

This is a lamp made of teacups with a bar up the middle to hold them.

These are just some of the ideas and there are many more. A great find and what a deal!
