I have noticed that vintage book displays are very popular right now. I have seen them in lots of gift shops and they are kind of pricey for old torn books so I decided to make my own.
I went to a local thrift shop and bought 3 paperback books.
There were all kinds of books there and I found some that would be perfect. They were priced at $1.50 each and then I got a 50% discount.
|I tore off the book covers.|
|I left them outside so the sun would fade the pages. Can you see the raindrops? Yes, I left them in the rain too.|
|I added a little raffia and VOILA!|
|Not bad for a thrift store project.|
|I bought three books but I just couldn't tear the cover off this one.|
|I found a place for it in my guest room. Right next to Tara.|
|For now, it will stay here.|
