In some other life, I will have a beautiful library filled floor-to-ceiling with rich, leatherbound classics, and stacks and stacks of gorgeous, tasteful home decor books.
Oh beautiful library, you will be mine someday! Muahaha!
In this life, I prefer to ogle the pretty pictures of gorgeous homes in magazines and blogs and haven’t yet justified dropping the benjamins on coffee table books, even if they’re beautiful when displayed.
The other day I saw my little pile of fabric samples sitting there innocently, not knowing they were about to become part of a decorating hack, when a lightbulb went off. They were just the right size for my silly little scheme.
Enter hardcover books about who-knows-what with their covers removed.
Add a little tape, and ta-da!
An easy-peasy decorating hack that makes ugly books display-worthy for zero dollars…
And another friendly reminder not to judge a book by its cover.
