5 DIY Projects using Books

If you like to thrift, you know that there are so many beautiful books out there.

However, it’s hard to justify buying more and more pretty books — just to fill shelves. Of course, I could read them; but if I’m not reading them {guilty!}, then it seems wiser just to pass them up.

That is, before I saw some of these creative projects, anyway.

  1. I’ve seen people throw book themed parties — like wedding showers, baby showers and birthdays. Wouldn’t these “book”marks be the perfect party favor?
  2. Learn how to make these book-ish monograms yourself.
  3. You know that I love functional decor. Allison kept her nightstand cord-free by turning a vintage book into a charging station.
  4. The pages of books can be used in so many ways, and this botanical art is a large piece — but for a low price.
  5. Vintage books have classic and beautifully simple covers. However, We probably don’t own only vintage books; so let’s just use them as the bookends, instead.

Have a lovely weekend!
