Using Books to Create Shelves

- Creative Shelving, DIY

I’ve seen several variations of using books to create “book” shelves in the home. In most cases, it means sacrificing one of your books for the sake of the shelf which can be difficult for many. This DIY home project combines the look of books as shelves while preserving the text. This also allows for easy switching when you discover that the next novel on your summer reading list is currently being used elsewhere in the home!

DIY: Jute Wrapped Bottles

- DIY, Recycle

Wrapping used wine bottles in jute keeps your spring and summer blooms looking fresh and modern. The texture of the rough twine contrasts with the delicate floral stems from your garden and adds just the right amount of interest.  Makes a great gift idea for your neighbors and friends who invite you over for a barbecue.
