Anyhow, on to my most recent project. I have a whole bunch of old books stacking up in my garage and for some reason I LOVE old books. I haven't found something to do with them until now and I think I am going to keep making them. I have these two book shelves that are on both sides of my fireplace that I can never figure out how to fill them up and make them look cohesive. So I thought if I paint these books white, with some acrylic paint, and make dress them up in some white lace they would look pretty displayed up on my shelves. Since they were just sitting in my garage anyhow I thought I would take the chance. Here is how they turned out after I finished the lace with modge podge and some brown antiquing wax. They look so nice up on my shelves and I can't wait to create a few more. I hope you have a great weekend!!
I had a picture of the book before I covered it with paint and lace, but the picture disappeared from my files. :) I think that you can probably imagine what an old encyclopedia looked like.
