DIY Coffee Table Books

While I wish I were rich enough to drop $50 a book for some Chanel books(affiliate link) to put on my shelf, let me remind you again. I am a broke college student.

I came back to reality and headed to my Goodwill. Don't get me wrong, I love to read and all, but this time I was looking for books with physical character. I knew I was going to be spray painting them, so I wanted there to still be details that stood out and made it obvious that it was still a book. I ended up with 3 ugly cookbooks and a book about getting happy. 



A few coats of spray paint and some letter stickers was all it took to get the pretty books I wanted. I did cut the Chanel logo out from my Silhouette
(affiliate link), but I think regular letter stickers would be pretty much the same. What do you think?



Don't forget to show me yours! #LittleBitsofLacey

xoxo, L
