Never Throw Out Old Book!!

I am one of those firm believers that books should never be thrown out. Not only is it someone’s work and should be respected BUT there are so many uses for books even if you never intend to read them again. Donating is a good thing but just check out these super amazing DIYs that you can do with your old books!!

A BOOK CLOCK!

The first one is pretty cool but I would personally make the clock portion bigger so you could actually read it haha.

THE INVISIBLE SHELF

A BOOK PURSE

YES that’s right. A purse made out of books. I would love to give this a try but again I may lack the patients. If anyone actually chooses to do this you have to let me know!!!

WALLPAPER

Could you image having a nice reading room with this as your wallpaper. Or even a small nook with wallpaper like this. It would be so nice. You could even highlight some of your favourite lines so they stand out. Love!

CUSTOM HARDBACK

This is really nice because sometimes our books get a little warn down and torn but we don’t have the heart to get rid of them. Problem solved. You can make your own custom hardback to replace the paperback so it will look great for as long as you want to keep it… which is forever!

A LAMP

Just be careful, you can only use a 15 watt bulb so the paper doesn’t go up in flames!

Now that your mind has been sufficiently blown!

 Go try some of these because our house should be surrounded by books even if we don’t read them!!
