I LOVE Pinterest. It drives The Husband a bit nuts as I am always on Pinterest. I have found that I use it in two main ways – research and inspiration. There are things I know I want, so I will research them on Pinterest to find the best way to do it, different styles, etc. For example the board and batten project and the craftsman style front doors. It is also amazing all the things out there that I never would have imagined. I love pinning items and then actually doing them.
I use old books in my decorating, so as soon as I saw this pin, I knew it would be the perfect solution to hide the radio in the den.
The only thing I did differently from the tutorial is that instead of a box, I made mine a U-shape so it would slide in front of the radio.
I just glued the books to a 1”x6” (and then had to use a little filler piece to get the exact width of the books).
