Vintage Newspaper Ads Make Lovely Art


When my husband and I first got married, we lived in a little apartment in a suburb of Portland.  In this apartment complex, there was an unspoken code, if you had something you were throwing out - that someone else might like, just set it beside the dumpster.  It was the unofficial swap meet of the community.  


One day, my husband found a stack of American Weekly newspapers from the 50's, - in mint condition.  We took some of our favorite covers of the pile and framed them in floating glass frames (we bought at Target).

All in all, this was a very inexpensive, very unique project that anyone could do.  They don't even have to be vintage - you could frame a group of your favorite magazine covers.  Displayed in a gallery grouping like this, makes for a wonderful display.
