The third time is a charm right? I hope so. I woke up again not feeling happy with my latest fall set up again!
I still had a little bit of my caramel latte Krylon spray paint left and some purple Reader’s Digest books.
Before I was ever a blogger I was a spray painter. Nothing is safe if I have a can of spray paint, however, I have never sprayed a book before. Reader’s Digest are easy to find so I thought why not try it.
I always spray paint outside on a piece of cardboard. I opened the book to get the outside sprayed all at once.
I know it isn’t a good photo, but hey I remembered to take one so that is brownie points.
To get the edges I placed the dried book on an old votive holder so it would sit off the ground and I did one side at a time.
The paint went on so easily and it didn’t take much paint to cover the book. It dried very quickly too. And caramel latte never looked so good. I love this book makeover.
This is the look I love. I am finally satisfied with my table which is a good thing because I am now out of paint. If you want to see the other idea for this table then go here.
The paper edges look so pretty with the metallic paint.
I kept my wreath and just used a clear adhesive dot to hang it from the mirror with fishing line.
And finally my finished table.
I hope I haven’t bored you with all off my different attempts to get this just right. At least we learned you can spray paint a book!
Will you spray paint a book now? You should. It is fun and easy.
