A Trip to the DI...gone well

Yesterday my friend Jacalyn and I went to the DI. We have been seeing all of these cute craft blogs lately , and seeing what all of these crafty people made with other people's junk inspired us! Haha! I purchased these 3 books at DI for $1 each...with the idea of revamp in my head!!!
I spray painted them black (along with some other DI finds...pics of those items coming soon), I also painted the book pages.
I then chose scrapbook paper that matched my home decor.
If you'd like you can skip the painting and go straight to mod podge and paper!!! This will make for a very quick project! I cut the paper to fit each side of the books. I then mod podged the paper, then with double sided tape, I stuck the paper on to the books.
I added a little bit of hod podge and I was done! I bought the handle at Lowe's for about $1.50. These look great on our desk!!!
