Book Project from Almost Never Clever
Finding the right piece of art to hang on your wall can be both difficult and expensive. Especially if you are looking for a substantial piece. But there are a lot of great DIY ideas out there that will save you a ton of money and, if you find just the right idea for you, you will love.
There are two ideas that I have seen lately that I have loved and are super inexpensive. Almost Never Clever used old books to create this piece that now sits above her couch. I have a soft spot for old books anyways, but I really love the way she layered the books.
And you could add a lot of meaning by looking for copies of books that are important to you. Or you could fill it with the cheapest paperbacks you can find at a garage sale. Either way, it will still look amazing.
The second idea I saw over at CRAFT Magazine. Sadly you probably won't be able to recreate this colorful masterpiece exactly because these San Francisco Fast Passes are a thing of the past, but you could replace them with any number of things. I actually wish I hadn't thrown out all of the unused Disneyland Fast Passes we had in our memorabilia boxes. They sort of remind me of paint swatches too but I always feel guilty using them for anything other than picking out paint.
