love. just that - love. looooooove. love is all you need.
and love can be distressful, instead of stressful!
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 inches by 5.5 inches, and 1 inch thick, painted with old white chalk paint and stenciled with a rustic red-brown ink in a lovely pattern. 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!
