So this same local B&B
that did the copper penny backsplash
... which, by the way, I found out took 2700 pennies ...
also got creative with old books.
2700 pennies is only $27 ... right?
I am friends with these guys on Facebook,
and follow their recycling/renovation projects.
This project used to be an old dance hall.
The wall is covered was 30 feet long, and 10 feet high.
It took 350 book covers .
Interesting project, but not for me ... I don't think.
Too busy looking ... but maybe it's all the stuff.
I'd stick with soft browns and creams if I were to do it,
and have very minimal decorations and furniture.
I think the busyness takes away from the art of the wall.
But, that's just me.
I am more of a minimalist ... I don't do "clutter" very well,
and don't need a lot of "stuff."
I do LOVE the cubby-hole bookshelf though ...
love, Love, LOVE IT.
I can sooo see my collection of special rocks,
and Nani's retired boots
