Painted Books

At Simply Vintageous, Suzan has been sprucing up her house.  She had some books that she didn’t want to part with that just weren’t looking as pretty on her bookshelves as she would have liked.

Suzan opted to do something a little unexpected with those books to give them a new look.  She pulled out her paintbrush!  She gave the books new covers in softer colors that suited her decor by painting them with chalk paint.  She even added a stencil or two.  Even though Suzan’s husband thought she was a little crazy, Suzan is happy with the softer look that the “new” book bindings give to her bookshelf.
