book 'em . . .

This is a quick and easy take on arranging books by color. 

I became obsessed with this great idea and tried to collect and use books decoratively but it can be really expensive and difficult to find a lot of the colors.

A similar effect can be achieved by using a selection of colored paper.

Cut it to size and place the book on the sheet.

Fold it around the spine.

If you use painters tape it can be easily removed.

Choose colors that match your decor or test out new and hip color combinations.

Write the titles on the sides and you have a great way to display your paperback books.

This makes me happy. I've already looked at this post 3 times today and I love it. I'm going to utilize the idea in my daughters room and cover all the books in varying shades of pink.
