DIY Coloring book Poster
A few weeks ago I was helping my wife’s parents clean out some boxes and ran across an old coloring book that my wife must have used has a child. Flipping through the book I found a few pages my wife had colored in and even signed. I decided I should save the book from the trash pile and attempt to come up with a project using it. This poster is that project.
- One old coloring book full of childhood memories
- One oversized frame
If I had really wanted to fancy it up I would order a black mat to help fill in the frame and spruce it up.
Picking the right pages
After looking through the pages I decided on this one. Its has the signature and some good coloring.
Now I just need to pick a blank page to symbolizing my daughter (you’ll see later).
Now lets put it all together
After taking this photo I realized the cover pages were backwards so I ended up flipping them around.
*Bonus Quick Tip
When drilling into drywall bend over a post it note and stick it against the wall under the spot you plan to drill. You’ll be surprised how much clean up that little post it note will save you.
Hang on the wall
This project was really simple and could be adapted to work with just about anything, so keep an open mind (maybe an old piece of childhood homework?). You will notice I did purposely put it closer to the ceiling to try and keep little fingers away.
