What kind of librarian would I be if I didn't take the time to share some of the awesome ways your local library can help you create a beautiful home - on the cheap?!?! Here are three hints for ways the local library can save you some decorating dough.
1. Free magazines
This one is sort of a, "duh," but I thought I should share it anyway. If I'm not sure if I love a magazine, I like to check it out at the library for free, then decide if it's worth buying. My library also has a free magazine bin where patrons can donate old magazine and take home new (to them) magazines for free.
2. Library discard sales
I love to find sweet old books to use in little vignettes around the house. They rarely cost more than a dollar or two and are so much fun!
3. Unusual books
I was browsing the shelves the other day and picked up this little gem. I'm feeling a trip to the hardware store is in order so I can buy some nautical-looking rope and start tying some knots.
I think this would make a really cool wreath.
I have always want a monkey's fist door stopper, so I definitely need to try this.
I'd love to stitch a few of these together to make a unique table runner.
What's the best thing you've found at your library?
