Antique Book Makeovers

My books love their new home on my ladder bookcase. I found some antique Mark Twain books that I fell in love with a couple of weeks ago, but I thought that they needed a little makeover.

Annie Sloan Chalk in Old White and French Linen
Adhesive Keys from Paper Source
Annie Sloan Clear Wax and Wax Brush
Paint Brush
 I decided that I wanted to chalk paint 2 of the books and leave the other 2 normal.
 I gave the books a coat of the old white
 and then followed with a coat of french linen.
 I added the keys from Paper Source.
I then coated the books that I chalk painted with a coat of Annie Sloan's Clear Wax.
Here's the finished product!

Thank y'all for reading,
