Look! Vintage Flashcards as Wall Decor

On a trip to Michigan a couple of weeks ago, we picked up this set of 54 vintage flashcards from antique shop Ipso Facto. This weekend, we had the chance to hang them in our living room...

We decided to wrap the grid around a corner to create interest and balance a tall corner piece on the other side of the room.

The flashcards came with metal slots that double as frames. The slots have a lip that's just the right shape to grab onto a nail. Each card has a mathematical equation, but they're oddly lacking answers on the reverse side.

My husband's not so sure about the asymmetrical arrangement, but I like it. We both love the worn patina on the metal frames.

For more information about Ipso Facto in Three Oaks, Michigan, see this store review from the AT archives.
