Words To Live By

Giving an old dictionary new life, this bathroom makeover cleverly creates a personalized space. This upcycle really gets my creative juices flowing; a trip to the used book store and just imagine the possibilities:
- Beautifully illustrated children’s books would make any kid’s bathroom fun at bedtime
- An old calendar of botanical prints could be lovely for a powder room
- Whimsical vintage books would make for conversation starting d├ęcor

Then I found these lovely images and became even more smitten with the idea.
I would love to have this book on my walls to read over and over again; what would you choose?

For step-by-step instructions visit re-nest where Karine from BODIE and FOU gives a tutorial.

What fun to read on wallpaper! I think doing nautical charts for sailing would be fun as wallpaper on a wall, or I think Beatrix Potter books would be fun on a children's bathroom wall!

I would pick any David Sedaris book for a small bedroom or even a feature wall (eek...I know). And I would pick an awesome cookbook for a pantry or breakfast nook, maybe.

I think this idea is very cool, too! I think if the fonts are in french script, it would be more charming but then it would be somewhat hard to read huh?!

How effective! I've seen a lot of the words on the wall theme lately and am gradually persuading myself to give it a go. The neatness of this project appeals to me.
