    I like to keep my favorite hardbacks and also use them to decorate. I've posted two techniques to make them over to look like vintage books and accent my decor. The first pic is a stack of books I added hot glue "bindings" then mod podged with printed papers then dry brushed with black paint. The red books are crackle painted with Elmer's glue and craft paint. Here are the two blog links.
