Number Wall Art Craft


Nothing too exciting or difficult about this process but I love the end result, have I mentioned that I am really really into meaningful home decor?!?  Well I am in love with anything with significance and this one has A LOT!  All I did was find my font on dafont.com and then think of significant dates in my life.

Day I was born, day hubs was born, best day of my life-the day we got married, and second best day of my life, the day that I end my 22 years of formal education :o) wooohoooo!!!  Oookkayyy so my graduation day isn't as earth shattering a date as births and a marriage but really 3 rows of numbers weren't quite what I was going for....darn I am a dork!...but really, maybe I will have to make a new version of this when/if Cal and I are blessed enough to have a little one....
I should note that I printed the numbers on an numeral system encyclopedia page, gotta love that!  Also I left the encyclopedia paper on the card-stock I used to print the paper and then distressed both papers edges with sand paper (my attempt of showing you this step is above).

I added scrapbook paper as a background and to add a little color...I am not sure if I love the frame, but it will do for now...it might get replaced this summer if I find a cool garage sale steal of a deal.



I have to share this funny tid-bit.  The husband explicitly told me not to nail anything onto the walls since we are moving in a few short weeks and just put a fresh white coat of paint up on this rental homes walls.
I couldn't figure out a cool way to display my arts and crafts without a nail somewhere so I decided to use my old door I have around just waiting for me to up-cycle it.  Ironically I kind of like it with the frame on it!





I am linking up here.
:o)

I nearly fell over when I saw that door- it looks PERFECT with the frame on it! I swear, the ensemble looks a million bucks.

I really like the end product, but I'm really confused.... why didn't you think of the REAL best day in your life....????? I'm just truly hurt. I mean the day that screaming little bundle of annoyance came in to your life should be memorable- I mean didn't you go out of your way to tell me how much you loved me in that car outside of the gas station.... hmmm maybe I'm getting that story wrong. Anyways I think maybe 10.08.1985 should be on that list....
Love you- your crafts are amazing. you are amazing. keep doing what you do!!!!

Um Yes, keep the door around for fun displays it is AWESOME! And I love your numbers on book pages. I agree, you needed 4 rows even if the fourth date isn't spectacularly special-it looks really nice!
