Sometimes I'll get the most random ideas in my head. Somewhere along the line in the last few weeks, probably during a Pinterest binge, I got the idea that I needed a whole bunch of National Geographic magazines. I've always loved the look of those stacks of yellow magazines adding a pop of colour on a bookshelf, table, or mantle. So where to go for a bunch of old magazines? Freecycle, of course! I posted my request and within a couple of days I got a response from someone with two boxes in their basement. A quick detour on my way home from work one day, and I had a lovely stack of mid 80s/early 90s National Geographics.
The best part is if I ever need some cheap art, there's plenty of lovely pictures to choose from! Just cut 'em out and slap 'em in a frame!
Do you ever get random obsessions like this? Any good freebies from Freecycle or anywhere else?
