Playroom Wall Art

It's been done before.  By me.  Using a book for wall art.  Because, you know, I'm crafty cheap like that.

This is what was in the playroom at the last house. Book pages clothes pinned to a wire. When we moved, I sent them on to two different blog readers.  Starting fresh!  And if you're interested, here's a calendar I framed, using award frames.  Very reasonable.  See the pattern?  Cheap cheap cheap.

So here's this one.  I had this fantastic book with ink drawn farm images from my childhood.  Always loved it.

I cut the pages out and mod podged them onto foam board.

 And then I hung them on the wall with poster putty.  Cost about $15 for all these mounted.
 I love them. It really spiffs up the playroom.

The drawings are so simple, but so perfect for this old farmhouse.

My little blessings approve.  Actually, they likely don't even notice.  But I'll pretend they love it nevertheless.


  1. Oh I love this idea and those images are incredible. Brilliant. They look awesome.B

  2. I absolutely love these! I adore cute illustrations. I found a vintage international cookbook with the sweetest art and now, thanks to you, I know what I can do with them! The woodwork in your home is awesome and of course your children are precious.

  3. Very cute! I love using books for wall art. You can get some really cute pictures that way. The illustrations you used are adorable (and unique).

    Good work!

  4. These look amazing! So does the rest of your playroom. :-)

  5. I love this idea! And the execution - so cute! When I was younger I had a calendar with vintage travel posters and I framed a few of the months. I love frugal art :)

  6. Never mine kids rooms. Art rooms for crafters is ideal.

    Your room is so lovely wit the wood and frames. Awesome!

  7. What type of Mod Podge do you use. Can you explain abou it as I have never used it. What brand do you use. . How do you apply it. I know dummy me but I have heard of it but never used it.

    Also there is all types. Do apply it heavy on it or light. Does it take along time to dry. Do you have a video on how to apply it.

    Thank you.

  8. Oh, this is just darling! I'm popping over from Mildred's Blackberry Lane! What a great play room too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  9. I am visiting from Mildred's place at Blackberry Lane! Love this idea! Cute little ones and LOVE the playroom! Have a blessed day, HUGS!
