Everyone loves decorating with books. It’s an inexpensive decor item, especially when you buy them at the thrift stores.
As I was admiring the new Ballard’s catalog the other day, I came across these Antique Book Bundles they are selling.
How easy to recreate those right? And it won’t cost you $18 or $25 like they are charging for a set. Just rip off some covers of old books and tie with string. So that’s what I did.
Pretty, right? You can stack 3 or 10 books, there’s no right or wrong. Have fun with it and stack them wherever in your home. I know some book lovers might be cringing that I tore off book covers, but these don’t have any sentimental value to me since I maybe paid .25 for each of them at the thrift store. Probably less, but I don’t remember. But the older, more worn books the better, because it gives more character.
I have these as decor on my winter mantel which I’ll show you soon. :)
Do you love decorating with books too? It makes me feel educated having books in random places all around the house. :)
