Okay, so not only do I LOVE reading books…

Inspiring ideas to create a beautiful, cozy & relaxing reading space.
 

But, old books are one of my very favourite things to craft with too.

Whether all cut up or just stacked tall, I love to work some old books into nearly every room in our home!


 

They truly make the most perfect decor!

I can’t wait to show you how I turned an ordinary stack of books I picked up at the thrift store into a lovely painted book set full of farmhouse charm…

  1. I’ve seen the ripped covers off books, but painting them?! You just took my love of decorating with books to a new level! This is such a neat idea! Thanks for linking up for I DIYed that! I always enjoy seeing what you share each week!

  2. Beautiful ideas…. I’m afraid I couldn’t do it though…. old books are… friends…… and I couldn’t cut them up or paint them. 🙂 I do really like your idea of the swags you made…. maybe if a book was ruined as a regular book anyway….. 🙂

    1. Awwww, I hear you. I definitely couldn’t make these changes to my own books, but I have no problem turning an old, discarded book into something I can love. Thanks so much!

      1. Thanks! And by the way, two things : 1- I just notice that you’re a fellow Canadian 😉 and 2- I nominated this post to be featured on #HomeMattersParty. Since we’re about 11 hosts and co-hosts, it doesn’t mean your post will be featured, but be sure to check it out next Friday!

        1. Awwww, well thank you Nathalie! And I absolutely LOVE meeting other Canadians!!! Hope you’re on the warmer side of Canada, avoiding all this snow we’ve been getting here in AB!
