Thrifty Book Find - Classic European Furniture Design

This was a great thrifty find for me a few weeks back. This book is full of black and white sketches of European furniture designs over the centuries. It is three volumes in one print and nearly 900 pages of this -
It will be great to use for collage work or maybe even book wreaths.  It would make a great background when framing vintage hardware too, like skeleton keys.  Look for upcoming projects and scans!  The best part about the book?  The price!
It was 50% off...which means I paid $1.00.  This may be one of my best thrifty finds yet.  Lots of inspiration here.  I think I'll link this up to -

I'm off to Renningers Antique Extravaganza in Mt. Dora, Florida tomorrow. It's about 40 minutes from here and totally worth the drive.  I'll share pictures on Sunday.  Have a safe weekend. Thank you so much for stopping by!
