I love books. The thing is I find that I don't buy them for myself, but rather add them to digital or handwritten 'wishlists', passing them on to friends and family for special occasions like birthdays and Christmas.
I love this Ikea hack! This delightful little house plant stand was put together using a bookshelf and the legs of an inexpensive Ikea Frösta stool. While the author sprayed it with a ombre finish I think it would look equally nice left raw or sprayed white. Detailed instructions on how to make your own are below.
