By the time my wedding photos surface I probably will have leaked some very important pieces that probably should remain a secret. But that is the beauty of me being my own boss, I get to do whatever I want. I have been utterly obsessed with the idea of starting a series of posts after the wedding about using all my wedding decor and turning it into the most perfect home decor. I love recycling decor as much as I love the idea of putting a bit of attention on the homefront which desperately needs some L-O-V-E.
So here is the big reveal of a very importance piece of wedding gossip, it's really quite juicy, as well as the reveal of my already-favorite series of posts, from wedding to home. I used book pages in the wedding. I won't spoil where, but let's just say, it definitely turned into a major portion of inspiration, though it was a very last minute decision. How I got the idea for it was actually totally weird. I thought about the idea of making a headboard out of book pages. The inspiration flew and before I knew it, I was up to my eyeballs in book pages and old books for my wedding. Funny how things just work out.
I decided to revisit the idea of the bookpage headboard and fell in love with an even better idea, book page wall!
These two images alone sold me.
I then started looking around a bit more and thanks to the lovely inspiration from my fave wedding blogs, I feel in love with yet another idea. Ribbon.
How totally incredible would it be to have the back wall behind the bed and headboard as a flowing wall of ribbon. Seeing as all my furniture is white, I could add a little color with this and make it dreamy and fancy all at the same time.
I am now in a major pickle. Ribbon or Book Pages.
I am going to go with book pages and here is why. I have thousands of book pages. I have already done the work on the book pages and there is no point in re-inventing the wheel just yet. And so begins my first transformation project turning my book pages from the wedding into wallpaper for my room.
Apparently the DIYing doesn't stop after the wedding is over. No indeed.
Wish me luck! I am treading unknown territory as of now.
