If you are someone who is always reading a book, chances are you have many books on your bookshelf that just sit around collecting dust. Well, if you are feeling crafty, try using them for these awesome DIY projects!

Floating Bookshelf

There is nothing cuter than having a floating bookshelf made up of books! The main items you need for this project is a hardcover book and L shaped brackets. You would build the floating bookshelf as you would any other, but instead of using a board as the base, you replace it with the book!

Side Table

Making a side table is easier than you think, especially when you have tons of books laying around! All you need for this project are books that are all about the same size, and either adhesive tape or glue! Just stack the books in whatever design you like, whether that be straight up and down or a spiral, and it’s ready to be placed anywhere in your home!


Nothing says book fanatic like a headboard made out of books! You can either nail them right into your way or onto a piece of plywood, but anyway you do it you will bring elegance and smarts to your bedroom.
