Something From Nothing and a little bit of Everything!

The art of turning "good junk" into "great design"

Our Wedding Guest Book


So I wanted to do something different for our wedding guest book. Something other than a book that will sit on the shelf and I will never look at it again. So there have been a lot of ideas going around about a guest book tree. So I decided to try and do it. Since I cannot draw, I had to hire my cousin Reid to do the art work. BUT in the meantime I would be able to make a sign and find something for it to prop up on.
First thing is first i need a sign. I got this frame from the Goodwill for $1.00.

 Then I found this on the interent. It did have different initials on it, nothing Paint program couldnt fix. I thought it was really cute with the birds and the country feel of it. 

In the frame it goes. I had a change of heart and spray painted the frame white. Looks pretty good for a dollar if i do say so myself.

So then we found this little number at the Cookstown Wing Ding. Which is a small town that puts on a huge yard sale every year. I belive I paid like 5-7 dollars for it.

This is the beutiful drawing my cousin did. It's amazing and fit on the easel perfectly. All that is needed now is to paint it black.
