When I sold my old house, my exceptionally talented realtor rearranged a lot of the furniture. She placed the china hutch in the bedroom, much to my surprise, then set me to refashion it with a mixture of books, antique candlesticks and china. I was pleasantly surprised at the result and decided to keep this unexpected look in the new house.
However, the only books that fit into those narrow shelves were my well-worn paperbacks. They didn’t exactly look that great.
So I just covered them. Like schoolbooks, but prettier. Brown paper with a decorative paper stripe down the spine.
Thank you so much for dropping by!
