Paint old bricks to look like books for your garden

Paint old bricks to look like books for your garden | Upcycled Garden Style | Scoop.it

Australian artist, Daryl Fitzgerald of Light Reading Melbourne turns recycled bricks into literary, and definitely, home decor gold. These made-to-order pavers are hand stenciled with paint and meticulously created to mimic real novels, worn pages and all. What’s especially genius and unique about these intentionally vintage-looking “books” is that their texture has been naturally revealed by time.
