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.
and yes... you can make these yourself! that is why i am offering FREE SHIPPING in the US.
because....well. what a deal! by the time you get the supplies and the book and then glue and paste and paint and distress and stamp and wax...whew. easier to just buy it here, right!
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!
