This seems to be a big trend right now, deconstructed books. And I for one am in love with the organic look of this. While cleaning out the cubby in my daughters room, getting ready for a makeover in there. I came across this box of old books and a light went on.
So this is just a quick little tah da, to show how quickly and easily you too can achieve this look. Don’t pay big bucks for these type of books, do it yourself.
I started with one box of old books. I did evaluate every book. One was a first edition, so I put that aside, and was blue so I kept that. The rest gone with the covers. Using a scissors, I scored inside the cover at the bend and they ripped right off. Done.
This is a much cleaner look. Did I say cleaner, there are strings hanging off these books, but yes, it is a much more cohesive look, easy on the eyes, and pleasing to the eye.
That’s it really, a very simple, fun, project. Hope this inspires you to use some of those books you have stored up in your attic for home décor.
