Today I have an inexpensive little project to share with you.
It's really that easy...
1.Find some old books at a garage sale or thrift store
2. Paint them with acrylic craft paint
3. Distress the edges with a brown stamping ink pad
Here are the same books before I painted them.
Since some of the books were dark in color it did take several coats of white paint to get good coverage. Once the paint dried I ran my stamp pad along the edges. I've also heard of people using sandpaper to distress the edges.
They look beautiful on my family room coffee table, and I only spent around $2.00 for the books. Love it!
