Vintage Book Stacks

I love decorating with books! Here are some new book stacks I made by removing the covers and applying some vintage hardware to the bindings.
I used Gorilla Glue to attach them and held them in place with rubber bands while they dried.

 I printed out this old book cover page and French script page and adhered them to the top then added some special photos of my family.  
 This is my Grandpa Barath -- a very godly man who raised 11 children on his own after my grandma died at the age of 42.
 This is my mom (far right) and some of her sisters. Not quite sure what was going on here but it's a funny picture!
 A small mirror on one and some vintage jewelry, twine . . . whatever you have around make these a fun, simple project!


  1. I love your vintage book stacks! Love all the embellishments, and the vintage family history and photos, well, priceless!

  2. Oh, I love your books! Great photo of your Mom and sisters!

  3. What a great way to display not only books but family photos as well.

  4. I have vintage book stacks just like these but never thought to embellish them! Great idea!
    I started a new link party just for rustic and shabby chic projects. I would love to have you share this -
