I love old books and discovered this cutting technique. Now I have an old book Vase!

Then I got this very rough little table at a yard sale for 75 cents. When I got it home, I realized why it was 75 Cents. The particle board was falling apart, literally.

In comes the old book! I kept the page pieces from cutting it into the vase. The legs were made of real wood, so I went to decoupaging all the parts that were not.

Even underneath, where the falling apart was the worst. The decoupage is keeping it all together!

I painted the legs white.

And then I did a soft white wash over all the decoupage!
