A New Chapter

Well here it goes....our first blog! We picked one of our favorite "salvage" to start out with. Everyone has an old set of encyclopedias lying around, so we're sure each and every one of you can give those old books a new life.
For this salvage you need:
~ A set of old books
That's it!! Easy enough huh?
We bought a couple sets of old encyclopedias that we found at thrift stores. ($3 each set) We laid them on the floor sitting up so the bind of the book was sticking up in the air. We each picked a picture online that we wanted to paint and went for it. A very helpful hint: hold the books together while you paint so you dont get paint dripping down the sides of the books. Who ever thought those old books would be such beautiful artwork??
