We love using vintage graphics and ephemera to add unique details to our furniture makeovers and craft projects. Today we’re sharing our favorite places to find gorgeous, free vintage graphics.
We have a Free Graphics board on Pinterest where we pin any new graphics we find. If you’d like to follow us on Pinterest you can find us here.
