Up-Cycled Books

Here's a way to get vintage looking books without the big price tag. These are Readers Digest Condensed Anthologies. First I sprayed them all over with Design Master Gold Floral Spray including the inside covers. If you don't know about the Design Master product you need to. Specifically created for the floral industry for artificial flowers, it can be sprayed on fabrics without the sticky residue that other spray paint leaves when it "dries". I then used a brush on chocolate brown paint to do the covers. I found some decorative metal and wood pieces, sprayed them gold, and glued them on the spines. There is no end to how these books could be decorated. Maybe a decoupage cover?
