I LOVE to read. I remember at one point I’d happen to be browsing the “recommended” book shelves and there were very few that I had not already read. Needless to say, my shelves are littered with books. Think twice before throwing away your old damaged books. You can’t really sell them for much anyway! Take the eco-friendly route and repurpose them into something new and inventive and take the trash to treasure route. I thought I’d put together some fun repurposing ideas for your old books to get your creative juices flowing. Here are 10 Creative Ways to Repurpose Old Books!
Turn one into a unique lamp.
Make your own postcards or reuse the covers for handmade greeting cards.
Make an interesting picture frame. Add some special and memorable photos to an old encyclopedia and use it as a frame to display in your home!
Make your own book page wallpaper. How fun is this? I would love to cover an accent wall in book pages!
Create interesting artwork and make an invisible book shelf.
Hollow it out to make a secret hiding place. (on a side note, I love how the picture shows a cherished floppy disk).
The purse seems like it would be a little heavy, and the desk, well it speaks for itself, but how ingenious! Turn books into a purse.
Become eco-friendly and repurpose old damaged books!
