Love the colors
and the titles
Oh, those vintage illustrations!
Even the smallest of kids can hang things on a hook!
I added a board on the back to screw into.
Love the colors

Love the colors

I am hooked on vintage books, especially children's books.  But, I have decided I cannot keep them all, unless I want to open a vintage library in my home.  I used 3 animal themed childrens books to make this fun and colorful coat hook.

MacNTrash writes: Vintage books are great and this is a cute way to repurpose them. This would be an especially good idea for books with damaged pages inside and a fun decorating idea for a classroom or child's playroom. Posted: 8:56 am on January 15th
