Especially, when it is a new bookstore! #book #books #bookstore #bookshelf #bookshelves #bookworm #read #reader #booksarelife #booklover #bookloverproblems #readers #reading #readerproblems #library #literary #literature
I had this idea for awhile, and so I decorated this bookshelf last summer. I kept forgetting and forgetting to post pictures on my main blog… but here it is! I’m so in love with it, I want to do all my bookshelves like this. I used spray adhesive to stick book pages to a bookshelf, and then went over it with matte mod podge. From taking apart the books to the last of the mod podging, it took around 30 hours, but it was (mostly) easy work. I used books I already had, but plenty of used bookstores and library sales have bargain sections of books for $1 or less if you didn’t want to use your own books. The mod podge warped the paper a bit, which I don’t mind, but if you don’t want that to happen, you really have to take your time and be careful.
I used Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Hobbit, Wildwood Dancing, and The Chronicles of Narnia. I loved them all as a kid/young teenager they still mean a lot to me now!
