DIY Book Inspired Decoration
Reading gives us incredible moments where we are allowed to travel without leaving the place. Reading brings knowledge, creativity, inspiration and without books our life would be empty. If you are a book lover you could use this passion in the decoration of your house. Here we have some creative ideas to inspire you!
Staircase Painted as Book Covers
If you have a staircase at home, an incredible idea is transforming each step in one of your beloved books. Paint the book spines on the steps of the stairs and travell up and down your favorite stories everyday.
Book Page Painted Wall
How about having the first page of your favorite book as a different wallpaper in your house? You can do this using a projector (to make the page on the size of the wall), some paint and lots of patience! But the result is worth it!
Book Page Wall Frame
If you prefer something more discreet than the last idea, you can reproduce a page of your favorite book in a frame, instead of the wall. If a page is much, you can also copy a quote that inspires you!
Bricks Painted as Books
I love this idea! You can use some bricks as fake books! Choose your favorite ones and reproduce their cover on the bricks using some paint and lots of creativity. You can use them in the decoration as a door stop, bookend or only as a decorative piece.
Furniture Made With Books
If you have lots of books in your house but not enough space to display them, you can pick up some and use them to make a piece of furniture! A coffee table or a bedside table are perfect for that! Now, if you don’t want to use real books you can use the last idea (bricks painted as books) to do this.
Book Places Sign
Imagine having a sign inside your house or in your garden showing the way for your favorite book places! You only need some word boards and some paint. The difficult part will be decide where to go!
Shelves Made With Books
You can use your books as shelves! Find some books with beautiful spines that will work well together as a grouping and buy sets of brackets to use under them. Now you have more space for new books!
Wall Clock Made with Books
Use your favorite books to create a giant clock! You can also use books that have numbers in their titles! I’m sure guests will spend their time in front of your clock!
