Upcycle: Book Clocks


Once upon a time ... a friend and I ran a little business called Rebooked. It involved a LOT of work for very little return, but we were unemployed... we had nothing but time. And we learned a lot about upcycling old books! So much, in fact, that I've enjoyed working with them ever since. When we set out to make book clocks (2004), there were no online tutorials to be found. So there was a lot of trial and error (and swearing) involved. The first ones were so much work, I still have one on the wall (above) as a reminder. Today, it's pretty easy to find really good instructions from lots of talented people. Keep reading for my instructions, and a list of my favorite tutorials

Repurpose: Bookish Valentine ...




I took pictures of books to share with you. I never do that! How incredibly novel of me ... :)  Have a happy day.

DIY: Another bookish headboard ...


A while back I linked to an awesome book headboard DIY.  My friend Terri had been threatening for years to create such a thing ... apparently this tutorial was the fire she needed. Her wonderful creation is pictured above ... a work of art doubling as a headboard. Now I want one. Really badly.
