"How to cover your books old school with brown kraft paper. - NO SCISSORS - NO TAPE - NO CONTACT PAPER Just books and brown kraft paper (or a disassembled paper bag). " - by blog author In my day is was simply a disassembled paper bag - nostalgic! Am I dating myself?
Kraft paper and gel pen covers. I often admire this look in others homes but 1) worry about the time to recover every single one of the books I have on display and 2) might miss the less affected display of the books as they were actually designed.
To be honest, recovering books to coordinate on your shelf seems a little frivolous. BUT. It's so pretty! And so many of the crafts I make are frivolous anyway. Because unnecessary crafting is fun. See how the justification works out? :) So, if I ever get the patience, I might cover a shelf of books.
