I found this calendar datebook in a trash heap in an abandoned house, so I tore out the pages, which were vintage botanical prints, and framed them in $2 oak frames that I  painted a pale pink, and voila, instant matching wall art. I thought it turned out so pretty These things go for a ton at the flea market so I was excited to find them. This is my first post by the way, so if it doesn't make sense it is because I don't know what I am doing.
