I wanted the decor of the wedding be inspired by 2 things- Vintage pieces from the past and Love stories. And since I love all things GOLD…. my planner & florist came up with a brilliant idea! Spray painting vintage love story books in gold!!! I mean way to combine all 3 obsessions of mine together!
In this episode my florist Shawna Yamomoto and I show you guys how to DIY & transform average old books that you already have in your home to vintage inspired peices of art!! We will be using these golden books as one of the main decor elements of the wedding, but they are also great accent pieces to have in your home!!! I’ll surely be taking all of these golden books home with me once the wedding is done! ENJOY!!!
Find some old books that need some lovin’!! They can be books that are just laying around in the house. Some of these books I found for less than 50 cents at a garage sale! SCORE! It’s all about recycling!!!
Make sure to protect yourself with goggles & masks! Spray paint can be VERY VERY strong!!!
I personally love books with a bit of texture & etching!
FYI – the HUGE “Call of The Wind” & “Treasure Island” books are faux books! They look like books but they are actually boxes/container that has the etching of the title!
And heres the final result!!!
Love how they look when they are all lined up & stacked together!
Have fun & Stay Chic <3
