Anyway, I thought these would look great on my ladder shelf but obviously I wasn't going to purchase these from PB ;) I found 4 old hardcover books at a thrift store.
Here is my little version. I decided to use darker string to go better with my living room decor.
I think it makes a nice addition to my shelves ;)Decorchick! also did a version of a book bundle she saw in the Ballard Designs catalog. I think Ballard is charging around $25 for their bundles. Either way, I did mine for a very small percentage of what they are selling these things for! I don't think my hubby would be too happy if I told him I spent $40 on some old books with the covers ripped off ;)
p.s. I am not trying to imply that books are 'trash' by the title of this post. I love books and think that they are important! I just think this is a great way to re-purpose unwanted old books from a thrift store. :)
P.S. I'm linking up!
