New Uses for Old Things/Postcards

20 Feb

When we’re talking about old things or better said antiques, it does not necessarily mean that it is something that grandma used it way back than, but better yet, something that can be of use for us in today’s modern world, so we’ve  found a report by that shows us six new uses for old things.

1. Vintage Postcards

Group multiples for maximum impact. Back in the late ’80s, a college-aged Scherer scooped up this series of vintage Pompeii postcards for a mere $10. But it wasn’t until he moved into this house nine years ago and started decorating the entrance hall that he had the chance to play up their appeal. “Because I went bold on the walls with Benjamin Moore‘s Marine Aqua,” he says, “I relied on neutral accents that would really pop.” Using bookbinder’s glue, Scherer affixed all 45 postcards to a large canvas before hanging the work above an antique grain bin and a pair of mercury glass lamps.
