I saw these on Restoration Hardware's website for $29 a bundle . . .
and I thought, huuummm, $29? I can make those. So with a $1.50 roll of jute and 3 books I found in one of my boxes . . .
I removed the covers and tied the naked books up . . .
Personally, I like mine just as much - or more - than the $29 version. Not sure where they will end up inside, so for now they will remain outside on the table.
This is how Restoration Hardware displayed them . . .
I think I'll be going to Friends of the Library next Saturday for their $1 a bag book sale!
