A Literal Literary Lining for Your Living Room Floor

There are some ideas that surface which stun you. You take a minute and quickly ridicule them in your head and then step back and think, well I dunno — I don't hate it as much as I should. That's the case with this book rug and although it's probably more of a show piece than a functional item for your home — assuming all the books were destined for an ill-fate anyway — it's actually kind of neat.

Craft or home decor projects that utilize books are always on the quick to criticize list. Most of us love books greatly and don't like to see them damaged. It's easy to believe that they should all be in libraries for an eternity or shipped to places where folks could use them.

That said, there are times where you just have an over abundance of material that no one else wants. This rug was created by Pamela Paulsurd who focuses her work on the concept of handwriting and items of the like. This rug is able to be walked on and we're guessing would provide a soft comforting smell to whatever room it's placed in. Are you tired of the "building with books" craze or would you rather see folks being creative with other materials? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
