Hanging Door Art {Nursery Quotes and Scripture}

I’m back today with another nursery project!  I think this is my favorite one yet.  I hope it comes across in the pictures, but it is a huge focal point in the room and adds so much above the crib.  

You may recognize the door as the match to our pantry door.  Mike found them near a dumpster outside his work and knew I would want them for something.  Smart hubby:)  They were french doors that we were able to separate and get two great projects out of.  The right door fit perfectly in our pantry and the other door made the perfect display for the nursery.  I started by painting the front side of the door in Whispering Peach by Behr {the same color I used for the rug}.  Then it was time to decide what to fill the panes with.  We wanted something meaningful so decided to go with some our favorite quotes and scriptures that fit a baby girl’s nursery.  If you follow me on Instagram {@imperfectlypolished} you may have seen me working on creating all the quotes and scripture a week or two ago for this project.

I collected all the quotes/scripture and used websites with free graphics and backgrounds to create my own unique artwork.  Then I took my 10 pieces into Kinkos where they sized them all to match and printed them in color for me.  Once I had everything sized and ready, I started to assemble the art.  I laid my door out and played around with the arrangement until I liked how everything looked.

Then I simply used some invisible tape and taped them on each pane.

Next I attached the fabric background.  I used some cotton, glittery gray fabric from Joann’s.  I love love love the sparkle it adds.  I just cut the pieces to fit the panes and stapled them into place.

Then we had to hang it.  Mike used his stud finder to find the studs behind where the door would be hanging and marked them on the wall with some tape.

Then he screwed it into place.  It’s super sturdy.  I’m pretty sure I could hang from it and it won’t fall down.  I painted over the screw holes and it was finished.

 

 

 

 

 

I love how this room is coming together.  It’s soft and calm, yet pretty and girly too.  I think she’s gonna love it:)

What do you think about hanging a door on a wall?  I guess it isn’t the first time we’ve done it and probably won’t be the last:)  I’ll share all the scripture/artwork with you later in the week so come back if you want to use it yourself!

    Jessie.. You are so creative and you two are too cool how you guys do all the projects together… Makes the room that much more meaningful..

    Would you mind sharing the site that you got the free graphics from or was there more than one?

    • Aw you are so sweet, Kelly:) Thank you! To get the graphics, I just searched google and found them all from different sources. A lot of blogs came up that had created free backgrounds and lots of just background websites with free graphics you can use. I would just put in a specific search for what you are looking for and something will come up!

    Love it! Such a great idea! You could also use “I love you a bushel and a peck” It`s a cute song I always sing with my grandkids!
