 I am not talking about the special ones that are worth a lot of money…just plain old books.

Have YOU ever thought about ways to use them besides putting them on a shelf or stacking them on a table?

Here YOU go…a few ideas of what to do with old books.  If I had researched this earlier, I had a ton of old textbooks I could have used for some of these projects.  I tossed all of my textbooks away or gave them to another teacher...I wish I had kept a few.

Laura’s blog has oodles of ideas on how to use old books…

Here are a few of them.



I like this idea for a small side table beside the bed.

Paint the books YOUR favorite color, glue together with extra strong glue, and done…


Make a birdhouse…Sit this on any shelf or table in YOUR home.

Great conversational piece and a unique home décor item.


his Wall Coat Rack is another unique idea that Randi shared in her blog Dukes and Duchesses


Randi also shared this headboard that is awesome…


Just found this one…Love it for the holiday season décor…

Get YOUR Christmas Tree On…

Happy Crafting…
