Painting Hard Cover Books for a Decoration?

Is there any way I can connect three hard cover books together at different angles? Then I would like to spray paint them a bronze color and put a coating of something on them to preserve them for staying outside on my small table for the summer?

I would check out what different types of glues there are and I would glue them together. What a good idea! I am starting to think what I can do to make bookends out of books this way!

Thanks for getting my mind to rolling on how to use this tip for my house!

Blessings, Robyn

How about drilling a hole through each and stacking them with a long screw or metal rod with end caps? Even a wood dowel might work.

You'll want a really strong, weather and waterproof glue. I assume you mean they will be stacked one on top of the other, or do you mean side by side as you would find them on a shelf? Sand the surfaces to be joined thoroughly and wipe off the dust.


Try E600 glue or the like in a well ventilated area. Sounds like a great idea. Makes sure your paints and varnishes are also outdoor formulaes.
