I rarely post about personal projects but had so much fun with this DIY project that I had to share!! I am a HUGE fan of Whimsy Girl blog. You can see her website here. She posts tons of fun interior design ideas/inspiration, gift ideas, and tips for moms. All of that being said, I borrowed this project idea from her and you can see her DIY post here.
Her post highlights using her favorite quotes from famous authors displayed as vintage book pages, but with my three year anniversary coming up, today actually, I decided to put a personal touch on the project. When my husband and I said our vows, on this day three years ago, we decided to recite traditional vows as well as writing personal promises to each other. During our church ceremony we read our personal vows to each other in front of our closest friends and family. My INTENTION was to do this project for our one year anniversary, but...well as you know, life happens and I am just now getting around to it.
This project could easily be translated to quotes from children's books and used as decor for a child's room, or if you've made a speech of some kind this would be a great way to remember it and display it.
I'll take you step by step through what I did!
First, I looked all over town for matching 16x20 inch frames. I wanted a simple, classic edge without too much detail. (I forgot to take a picture of the "before" frames, but they were just simple light wood grain purchased from Wal-Mart for around $15 each). I wanted to find the frames first so I knew exactly how large to make the prints.
I absolutely LOVED how this project turned out!! Do you have any quotes that you'd like to turn into book page art? Feel free to email me with questions! Thanks for stopping by!
