Using vintage style books is an excellent idea if you want a simple and inexpensive way to bring some old-fashioned into your home decor. Use the pages to recover tables or countertops or make a runner. Make sure that you’re not using the first edition, and then just take out the pages and use your imagination. You could also just use the entire book as decoration if you prefer not to take them apart.
