RePurpose Wednesday – Vintage Books

I adore finding new ways to repurpose vintage items for modern day living so I decided to  have the Wednesday post be just about cool new things I have come across to give provide a little repurposing inspiration!

I love repurposing vintage books for decoration and have done this for years.  The NYTimes even wrote an article on how books are being used for decoration.   BUT I came across this idea on Facebook this week where you can make bookmarks out of vintage book spines and just thought it was wonderful!









Then I came across this cool online shop called Books by the Foot where you can buy books by the color!  So all you edgy interior designers out there bookmark this website!  I of course liked the green books.















More inspirational pics for you to look at….
