Decorating on the Cheap!

Lately, I’ve been seeing these sweet little stacks of cover-less books everywhere. Some selling for upwards of $30! The penny-pinching crafty girl in me knew I could make my own for so much less, and so off I went to the thrift store…

Half an hour and $1.50 later, I arrived back home with my three perfectly stackable paperbacks.

I tore off the covers, and rubbed the edges lightly with a damp teabag to give it an aged look. Then just tied them all together with some jute that I already had, and voila! Lovely new versatile decorating accessory. For $1.50. Yes please!
