We had a set of very out dated encyclopedias, and they had sat on our shelves untouched for years. Thrift Stores, Libraries, etc won’t take them anymore. So I figured out a way to reuse them in our home without damaging them!
Here’s a picture of our old encyclopedias. I moved them to our living room.
I bought 2 of these trays from the Target Dollar Spot.
I started by stacking the encyclopedias on either side of a bench we have in our living room.
I placed a tray on top of the book stacks.
Now I have side tables in our living room which is also our reading room.
I decided I wanted to try another version, so I spiraled the books in and added the tray on top. I really love how this one turned out. Which one do you like better?
