Before & After: A New Way to Read in Bed

Before & After: A New Way to Read in Bed

Reading in bed is one of my all-time favorite pastimes, but since I've switched to an eReader, I don't get the same romantic experience I did in the old-fashioned hard cover days. This DIY headboard could bring back the feeling, even if I'm not scanning the pages.

The blogger, Kassandra from Design Everyday, wanted to create a headboard that captured a love of reading. With some thrift store books and a plywood base, she achieved these incredible results.

Book Lovers: Don't flinch when I tell you this, but they simply nailed each side of the open books to the board and used double sided tape on the paper to keep the pages from curling up.

Would you be brave enough to do this to your favorite classics to get this interesting headboard?
