Scrap Book Paper - Just not for Scrapbooking!

I got this "spice cabinet" a couple of years ago with the intent to paint it and use it for small junk embellishments, but I never did anything with it. Then after I did another project (see below) I thought I could cover it with scrapbook paper too!


And After

Just used Modge Podge, let dry, sanded the edges, and took some barn wood acrylic paint watered it down and stained the paper, mostly the edges to make them look old.

Now to get the junk stored in it!!

The other project I did was to cover books. I like the look of old books but sometimes you just don't have the right color books or you just want something different. Well, I found this other blog post and loved it! She used newer books, how to found here!

Used old buttons, jewelry and key to embellish!

An illustration out of another book.

You could use copies of old photos and re title books for a certain project or decoration for a party.

Still time this summer to pick up a book and not read it!

Modge Podge it instead!
