A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Another Upcycled Book Project...

This is my 2nd one for the week!  This time - it's a hardback book -
an old elementary school story book - that got a little tweak...

 See - the story remains...
 But the cover was given a coat of black paint...
 ...then I added a title from a sheet music cover and
 gave the whole thing a coat of varnish.  It can stand up - 
making it a wonderful addition for a valentine or any other vignette.
Can't wait for yard sales this summer to find more old books!

This is my 13 year old sons favorite book from elementery school. He still talks about it. Such a cute idea for a project and I'm glad the book is still able to be read. :)
