Writing on Walls

One day last December, I was not feeling sleepy even though it was way past my usual bedtime. It had been a year since I have moved into my new room. I see the bright yellow walls, still so clean and new, and I see a marker beside my bed.

And I guess, no more motivation is needed. Thus, on that day, this happened:


I didn’t know lettering, or calligraphy, I still don’t. I am by no means artistic. But still, I decided to write on my walls. And once that was started, I have to get going.. Because, who wants a wall with awkwardly placed quotes in them?

The mission began – I have to fill this wall with beautiful words, phrases, sentences, excerpts, quotations that I have loved in the books that I have read, am reading.

Today, after more than five months – here’s how that wall looks:


I see this everyday before I sleep and when I wake up. And it makes me happy, encouraged, determined, or whatever I feel I need most for the day. I find it in this wall.

So I guess the goal is, once I have my own house, and I have assigned which one will be the Wall of Quotes (cause there will surely be one, future house!), I have to make it pretty and better than what I have today, which I fondly call in my head as organized mess. I gotta learn lettering or calligraphy! Must start practicing!

Anyway. That’s it. Just a random something.

Til the next one,

  1. Wow, that’s such a cool idea! I have this little notebook filled with whatever great phrases or quotes I find in books, but it’s not really something you have near all the time and sometimes you simply don’t have the time to sit down and read it. This wall of quotes solves that problem and instantly shows you all those inspiring, encouraging, and uplifting words. Great thing to add to my list of DIY ideas, thank you! 🙂 PS: great choices & great quotes 😉 love them all!

    1. Hi Lily! Wow, thank you for visiting my blog first of all. Secondly, I am glad you liked the idea. Me too, I tend to write down quotes in a notebook, or whatever is handy at the moment and sometimes I just forget about it. This wall really reminds me of (at least some of) them every day. 🙂 I love waking up to this every morning.
