When I was a little girl my parents had a big book of beautiful animal illustrations. I loved to read through it. It was called Character Sketches from the Pages of Scripture. There are two different volumes. The one I found at the thrift was Volume II. And I thought it would be beautiful framed all together making a gallery wall.
Thrift Store Book Becomes Gallery Wall
I turned a book of wildlife prints I found for $3 at the thrift shop into a gorgeous gallery wall.
This was such a simple and inexpensive project. The first thing I did was cut the string binding. Then I could take out the pages. Some of them I had to cut out if they were still attached.
I started buying simple black frames at Hobby Lobby when they were on sale a few at a time.
Then I simply put each print in a frame.
My husband hung them up in three rows. I rearranged them to try to space out the birds, butterflies and mammals.
For under $40 we achieved this gorgeous gallery wall! It was so easy and made a big impact! Next time you thrift, look for old books can you can take apart and frame. You may find animals, maps, children’s books or landscapes.
