Vintage Books as a side table

Hello, Blog Friends

This post is going up late, but my sweet hubby had to fix our computer. But now we are up and running. Yippee!

The last few weeks, I have been organizing, rearranging and purging. I am getting ready to do a Just Between Friends consignment sale in October. So, needless to say I have been very busy.

I love to collect vintage things. For example, I love vintage chairs, books (children books mostly), dishes, plates, coffee cups, pictures and well you get the idea. One day my wonderful in-laws came for a visit and brought with them a stack of vintage books. My husband told me they belong to his grandfather, who was a teacher. I love old things so we have a stack of vintage history books. For weeks I have been trying to figure out where in the world are we going to put these books. We have no bookshelves, so I had the books stack up in the corner of the office and a few months later I found this vintage chair and I put two and two together and this is what I came up with. What do you think?

I have more to do, but I just wanted to give you an idea what it looks like.

  1. I am bedazzled by vintage books too and you are one lucky girl to get hold of all those vintage treasures.
    As per the felt - I have not try to make my own yet, although I learned a lot (and browsed like crazy thru the net for instructions)and maybe, maybe one day I'll try and make some myself. If I do - I'll let you know!
    Another thing - the link I put on the post leads to my profile on pinterest.
