Book Hook

Friday, January 11, 2013

I have a bit of an obsession with vintage children's books.  Perhaps it stems from my years of teaching.  As a child, I loved to visit the library or the book mobile in the summer.  The smell of books, their fun covers,

wonderful vintage pictures,
I love it all.  But, alas I cannot keep them all (I may be trying to buy them all, though).  It was time for me to start using some of them for projects, the reason I have justified purchasing them in the first place.  I picked three with an animal theme to make this fun and colorful coat hook:
I screwed the books to a board,

sealed them with some clear sealer and added hooks,
Here is what the back looks like--I added an extra board--decided it needed a little more.
Even the youngest of kids can organize and keep things neat with hooks.  Find more ideas at Donna's Funky Junk Interiors.
