Sacrilege, or pure genius??

Written by Kirsten on January 19th, 2010

Okay, maybe “genius” is stretching it a bit. Errrr, more than a bit. But I digress. Tonight, I am sharing with you my utter ridiculousness, paired with my unfailing resourcefulness – allow me to present Exhibit A:

Part of me is cringing at the idea of using the books  (and shelves, which haven’t yet been re-mounted) to support and weigh down the kitty tower as the wood glue dries, but another part finds it hilarious and perfectly fitting. I really don’t own anything else heavy and versatile enough, and clamps wouldn’t work anyway because of the carving. So, I consider it justifiable.

‘Fess up, my friends – what alternate uses have your books been put to around the house? Tippy table fixes, pressed flower receptacles, doorstops?

    Lets see…not sure if its the same thing (it was a sketch book, but I wouldnt ruin an ‘actual’ piece of literature) I would take out my exacto knife, cut out the ‘guts’ of the pages creating a little box inside… I would put things in here (money, keepsakes, etc..) and then file it back on my bookshelf. Perfect camouflage :)

    Ooh, that reminds me of this awesome shelf idea I saw that I’d totally buy oversized cheap picturebooks for you to build….. ;)
    I’ve seen those keepsake books and think they’re very cool – I’d just have a hard time remembering which one(s) were hollow! LoL
