Don't let your books sit around gathering dust while you and your Kindle tackle your summer reading list! I'm not going to lie, I did not read this book (and I more "perused" than read my summer reading books), but I do read a lot and am sad to see books becoming a thing of the past. I salvaged this beautiful vintage book from a local "junk" shop and turned it into something you actually will get use of.

This wall mount rack is made from 100% upcycled, repurposed materials which I salvaged from all over the place. To make this rack, I salvaged the vintage book "Battersea Rise" by E.M. Forster and coated it with my secret ingredient to harden the book and give it a glossy sheen. I salvaged vintage brass double hook, sanded, primed, and painted it gold, then white. I heavily distressed the hook, so that the gold paint shows through behind the white, and then coated it with a clear finishing gloss. I attached the double hook and then attached a salvaged wall mount hook to the back of the book. So this rack is ready to ship and ready to hang!

This sturdy rack is perfect as a coat rack, towel rack, hat rack, or whatever else needs to be hung up. The clear coating solidified the book, providing it with extra strength and with waterproofing capabilities.

I love the yellow and grey printed design on the book's cover, and the classic, understated style in which the title and author are displayed. The colors compliment the white and gold distressed hook beautifully, and the rack will look amazing with a variety of interior design decor.
