Restyled Book Accents
Ever wonder what to do with those old, outdated encyclopedias from the 70s? Restyle them into decorative book bundles to accent any room.
My son just so happened to have a whole set of these in his room. I had no idea why. He had no idea why, but he said I could have them. Yay!
Since the cover was the only thing I wanted to alter, I initially cut it away from the pages so paint didn’t get on the ends of the pages.
Once the cover had been painted and aged, it was simple to reattach the cover with hot glue.
I used decorative scrapbook paper to cover the book.
Wallpaper or wrapping paper would also work.
The flower was also made from the decorative scrapbook paper.
I added a poem from an old book and a few other this-and-thats.
The entire book was tied up with string with a key attached.
