A couple weeks ago when I was in Chicago house hunting, I stopped into Restoration Hardware.
The Restoration Hardware here is alllll the way in Toronto, about 40 minutes from our house. And that’s IF the traffic isn’t horrendous…which on the QEW, it ALWAYS is.
Anyway, I don’t get into the actual store much so when I see one I stop. Nuff said.
As I was perusing the store with my eyes wide and my mouth hanging open, I made a mental note of some canvas-covered books on a shelf.
They were only for display so I filed it away in my “I’m soooo gonna make that when I get home” vault.
So today, I’m cleaning out my disastrous craft room and I had bits and pieces of canvas dropcloth. Too little for a big project, but too much to just toss. Ding ding ding…I extracted that canvas covered book idea from my very dusty mental vault. I grabbed some hardcover books and a glue gun and got to work.
Talk about easy. I just cut the dropcloth pieces and covered the books just like we used to cover our books in school. You know…back in the dark ages when we had those manilla paper book covers. The ones that we wrote I heart Shaun Cassidy on. Am I alone here?
Here they are…
I think they are super cute.
What say you?
