Shannon had a bunch of old hardcover books on hand, so she decided to use a handful of them to create a hidden storage compartment. Besides the books, she used a small wooden crate, a hot glue gun, an X-acto knife, and a scissor. To make the process less painful for both us and the books, we'd look for books with broken bindings and those destine for the garbage heap. (It's true that not all books are welcomed donations to charities.) Follow this link to Sewing Barefoot for the how-to, complete with step-by-step pictures of the entire process.
