Where do I get my inspiration? I steal it. For this blog, a blog—questioning what to do with excess books—from Wurd to the Wise unlocked my muse.
If you’ve found your way to my blog, I’m betting you have books in nearly every living space, including the kitchen and even your car. I’d go as far as saying you only bring a predetermined amount of cash to bookstores and leave the credit card in a very far away parked car as to not spend too much on the feel of crisp pages and a resistant woven spine. No? Just me? No matter, you probably know the struggle that comes with spring cleaning, moving to a new place, or adding a roommate/child/partner to your abode. For some reason, our lifting muscles, square footage, or other people do not understand our love for our books and deem some of them unnecessary. For those of you who shed a tear when a book leaves your possession, here is a semi-tongue-in-cheek guide on how to keep those books.
Christmas Tree–Yes, technically you still have to store your books, but you don’t have to store a tree. Life is about compromise.
Folded Book Art-Who doesn’t like arts and crafts? Don’t answer that.
Make a Table-Not the sturdiest, but efficient.
Make a Headboard-Customize depending on the mood you hope to set. Harlequin anyone?
