My sister in law and I went out and bought a purple chalkboard paint and I quickly set to work painting it inside and out. Once it was dry I used a chalk marker and wrote the "rules" of my tiny library and then filled it with some of the years best mysteries I happen to have had on hand. I have a friend in the USA who has an Stornvy shop where she makes vinyl letters and signs and I asked her to help me create the sign for the front of my box. I love what she came up with and almost a week and a half later the sign I ordered in grey arrived. It was easy to put on the front of the box and I added a clear top coat and placed the box at my door.
I also let my neighbors in our neighborhood Facebook group know about the cozy free library below my mail box and my front door. I am pleased to say I have had a few patrons pop over and help themselves! I also added bookmarks from some of my favorite authors to the box for my library guests as well.
I am very pleased with how this cozy free library has turned out and I hope it inspires others to start their own.
Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea and a cozy mystery tiny library craft today. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
