Casa Verde: An Upcycled Headboard

Craftster member Jessyratfink recently posted pictures of this awesome book headboard project. She's no stranger to upcycling old books into home furnishings. In fact, we featured her DIY instructions for a book-legged table here.

Jessy explains, "I work at a used bookstore, and so I was able to save a lot of old books and wanted to reuse them. I've previously done a table with book legs and a bookshelf out of old encyclopedias. I wanted something a little prettier this time. [The headboard] is made out of book covers, Elmer's Glue-All, a plywood backing, and some polyurethane to seal it. It was really simple as you just glue them down in layers!"
