Home Inspiration: Book Table

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Books are such great decor pieces on their own and they bring so much personality to a home! I'm a believer of displaying books around the flat and what a brilliant idea to make them into a little table! Dears, thumbs up or down? xox

P.S: Also love this!

(thanks Marissa)

Of course as a total book lover - I adore this idea! If only I didn't keep pulling out books from the bottoms of piles and making a mess...

Have a lovely day Diana!

Paul & Paula said...

yes, did that some time ago when I was too lazy to buy a little bedsidetable :)

Sara Szatmary said...

you can never have enough books!

Happy in red said...

Love the idea, but was distracted by the pretty chairs!

aj said...

But wouldn't I have to own books I don't want to read then? Or I'd constantly be breaking my table to read them. And I'm clumsy, so that vase - would be shattered glass, I promise. ;)

LOVELY idea.

Fantastic idea, Diana!
But with 4 of my pugs around...can be a dangerous look for me!

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

A huge thumbs up. This looks so cool. You could also do it with magazines.

Emily said...

great idea! Unique and cheap :)

Tish said...

oh quite clever! i dont know if i could part with my babies though...cuz that means i wouldn't be able to play with them...

Sam {fitnessfoodandfaith.blogspot.com} said...

definitely loving this! great inspiration.

Sierra said...

I love stacks of books, and this stack is wonderful as it serves a purpose rather then just another pile of books lying around!

Vanisha said...

This is lovely! But I like looking and re-looking at and reading and re-reading all my books so I'm not sure how practical this would be in my home!

Have a beautiful day ladies!

Zondra Art said...

This is fantastic idea Diane!
Kisses and happy weekend.

Deidre said...

I'd be worried I'd keep pulling the books out and end up with pileS of books instead of one book.

Diana said...

What a cool idea! Great for any room.

Jenny said...

I think I would mess this up trying to read the books on the bottom a lot.

Christianna said...

Thumb up from me, two actually!

Kayla said...

Love this idea. But I would miss actually being able to read and look at the books.

I love this!

Stephanie said...

From an aesthetic standpoint, I love it. From a practical standpoint, not so much... It would be such a pain in the butt if I decided I wanted to read one of the books!

Mimi said...

Thumbs up but not really practical for me with a 1 yr old who like to get into everything. Once day.

Oh, I love books! You are so right...I've always thought that they add much personality to a home! My house will have so many wonderful books.

I love the idea of books as a table! I also love suitcases as a side table too! I am currently in love with all things decorating (as long as it's my style) so I am always excited to find new things.

xoxoxo,

Diana said...

I like them, but KNOW I would be toppling them over all the time. Love how it looks though!

Jess said...

Well I'm a huge fan of books - so I love it! Easy way to bring more color and creativity to a room.

Monica from Hola!design said...

Lovely idea! I love to display my books...even though I don't have that many yet....

We got some rain today...hopefully it'll get warm by the weekend...

*see* you tomorrow!

Omgitstiffduh said...

Wow this is so cute!

rebecca said...

i've totally rocked this before cause i was too cheap to buy a bedside table. this one looks way better though.

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

Diana, I love this look as well. The only problem for me now: I have kids and they would knock it over! I love looking through all the design magazines in print and online for ideas (like this) that I make a file of for when the children are a bit older. :)

but i still love books--they are just all on shelves right now.

Bron said...

Thumbs up! Anything with books is a winner in my...book :P

Oh, My Darling said...

My klutsy self would ruin this table almost immediately

Jess said...

Cute Idea! Now I just need to go buy cute books! ;)

whoa dude! I love that! (and yes, I just said "dude".. not really sure how I feel about it now. Oh well. )

That's an awesome way to show off books AND make them useful. Or more useful, however you look at it.

That is so cool!!

Diana Mieczan said...

I think you can always keep on swapping the books around and even colour code them:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Art books would be fantastic for this, Melanie. Great idea!

Elisa said...

I love this idea, because I have books scattered all over my room, this is perfect!

Have a wonderful weekend my dear!

Signe said...

Love this idea :)

Annie said...

we do this :)

LiveLikeYou said...

Agree it's a great idea. Books and magazines make great tables and are great to use in ways that are creative instead of cluttering some space somewhere!

Alena said...

LOVE THIS. We have so many books that our bookcase is sagging. This is now my weekend project :)

{lovely little things} said...

Love this!

jake + cleo said...
