DIY Painted Book Page Decor

If you are like me, you like to change up your home decor a lot, but you probably don't have a money tree growing in your backyard, and if you do, can I be your neighbor? I also tend to hoard craft supplies, and once in awhile it's nice to actually use them.

So, I have this vintage chicken feeder that is such a fun little piece to decorate with. It's adds farmhouse/vintage charm and is a perfect alternative to a basket or tray.

Since part of my craft hoard is a stack of old dictionaries and world atlases that I saved from the trash, I decided to attempt a book page project. I went for a super easy project ,and decided to make a fun new filler for my vintage feeder; all I needed was a book to sacrifice, scissors and tape (and a marathon of Fixer Upper).

I just tore out the pages, cut them in half width-wise, rolled them and taped the end. Then I trimmed one end so that there was a flat end for it to stand on.

And, since I can't leave well enough alone, I got out my watercolors (this is the paint I used*) and added a little bit of royal blue to the tops of a few of the pages.

Then I filled my vintage feeder with all the rolled book pages and admired the fun new decor that cost me $0 and added an easy farmhouse touch to my home.
