book art

i finally finished this project that i started a couple of months ago. i found some old children's books at one of the thrift stores i go to often and wanted to turn them into art for our soon-to-be kiddos room. of course, it needed to be gender neutral, since we don't know if we will have a boy or girl placed with us.

i also found the frames at the thrift store too. they had never been used! i love finding great deals!

so, this is what i came up with... art from...

these are just some of our favorite stories!

  1. I just LOVE this idea! My mind is already thinking of what I could do with some of our favorite books -- thank you for sharing! Hope you get your baby soon - the room is so cute!

  2. Love what you have done with the old book art! It looks amazing! I did something simular in my little boys' room...I photocopied a few Dr. Seuss pictures out of some old books and then framed them. Love it!!!
