Would they be book shelves...?

Heard of a new use for old books. If you're at a garage sale or happen into a thrift store and come across some old books with interesting covers, why not use them as shelves for nicknacks, flowers, or even other books? As long as the cover is interesting looking, get some L brackets from the Hardware dept or more decorative brackets from the Flooring/Decor dept. and pick up some wall anchors and screws as appropriate from Hardware. Just place a book onto your work surface and mount the brackets to the books with some screws. You can also use some construction adhesive to help hold the book onto the brackets. Then position the shelf where you want it. mark your wall for the wall anchors and install.

Paul your puns always kill me man! I love this idea though, who else has got book-shelves like these? Nobody that's who!


As a side note a buddy of mine did a similar thing with an old snowboard that was decommissioned, it really is a clever concept that adds a ton of charactor to your decor.


keep up the good work Paul!
