Cheap Vintage Books

I picked up a few cheap vintage books that had rough covers and gave them a cool new look.   This is new for me to do and I just loved ripping those covers off.  Don't worry I used books that needed a new facelift!

I want to make some journals with the book covers.  Another new project for me to try!

For now I displayed the books in a galvanized container.


  1. I love vintage books. I have a few on display in my living room. I definitely have a soft spot for them. And old pictures, like 20's, 30's, 40's and such lol.

    Take Care.

  2. I really like to do just what you did with the books. I love collecting vintage books, have a few Wizard of OZ books-my favorite. Come by my little corner of oz and visit sometime.

  3. Those book covers are to precious to be discarded, this way they will enjoy a new life and will be enjoyed by someone else again...Great idea!

    Have a very nice weekend.

  4. I LOVE the torn off covers. They look so much more vintage this way! Besides, can't tell a book by its cover!
