Book Project

Since I have been into thrifting projects lately, I have been thinking up projects to create with old books. I purchased a whole stack at the thrift store and have been dreaming up ways to use them. I LOVE old books! These ones were really cute, but not the kind of books you would actually read. Hence, I didn't feel too bad doing this to them:

I painted the covers a shade of red to match my house and painted the pages antique copper. Then I covered each of the books in glaze. Add a pretty ribbon, some flowers, and some old keys and you're done.

I think it looks really pretty on my little end table.
