DIY Book Headboard

Like reading in bed? Book lover? Why not make a headboard from books? This DIY project is actually extremely simple to do. You’ll need a big piece of plywood to serve as the base. Gather up some old books from a book sale or garage sale or your basement or wherever you’d like. Hot tip: use actual books with paper, not Kindle books. Layout the books how you’d like. Then it’s hammer time:

Just nail them in, prop up the headboard and you’ve got a whimsical piece of smart furniture for your bedroom. You could even use this design as a wall decoration for a library or other room, it doesn’t have to be a headboard. (via design every day)
