Reading Material: How to Make a Book Headboard

created at: 10/18/2012

Do you have a stack of old books that don't fit on your overflowing book shelf anymore? Here's a clever way to reuse those books as a unique headboard.

I know this one is going to be hit or miss with book lovers, but I couldn't resist sharing Kassandra's do-it-yourself idea. I love the way it turned out. What do you think? Would you give this project a try?

I agree. I think it would some how need to be sealed so it wouldn't be a haven for bugs. (spiders, bedbugs etc.)

Cool idea though.

If you are worried about dust just cover the whole thing (all the open book pages) with a PVA gue and water mix or use Modpodge. This will dry transparent and can be easily wiped over when completely dry :D Courtesy of Miss Thrifty Tips on Facebook.

Love This. I am not a big reader but I would get books from people that do not want them anymore just to make something out of them. I sent this link to my sister who is a big reader and write and she LOVES THIS!!!!

Love books. Looks awesome. I am concerned about dust and future cleaning.
