repurposed books make beautiful decor! this is a very simple piece that can have big impact when stacked or grouped with additional books to create a line of one-word statements.
on your library shelves, in a bedroom or living room, tucked into small spots..it is a winner.
crafted from a book, a mix of glue and water, painted and distressed with chalk paint and wax and stencils, this item is a great example of imperfect beauty!
it is 8.5 inches by 5.75 inches, and .75 inch thick, painted with paris grey paint, stamped with a charcoal ink and wrapped with a bit of repurposed lace. the chalk paint is finished off with a very light wax, to give it a velvety texture and look.
my librarian and teacher friends love it when i create just the books, and send them off for stamping by students with self expressions - it's a great project!
