As my darling hubby was not jumping up and down for my latest "door art", I decided to reshuffle a few things on the bookcase. First things first, I grabbed all of my vintage books...love them! But realized I need a few more.
So I grabbed a few "new" books (the one on the right already had a little elbow grease into it).
Grabbed my sand paper, and sanded, sanded and...yes, sanded some more.
Don't they look great?
I will fair warn you, this is messy. Like super messy, especially with the black binding. I would have showed you a shot "during" but my hands were covered. You could even go a step further and add a little Distress Ink to the edges.
I think they look great mixed right in with the vintage ones. And you can pick them up at Goodwill for super cheap!
