This is a cool DIY project for bookworms out there!
I love reading as much as I love writing. I love the feeling of holding a book in my hands, as its spine rests on my palm, and the crisp smell of the paper as I turn each page. Among all the books that I have read, I have a few favorites – some of which I plan on reading again should I have some free time. Since I don’t have much time to spare recently, I am okay with looking at the books that are sitting on my bookshelf for now, calmly waiting for me to pick them up.
However, for those bookworms out there who are not satisfied with keeping their books on bookshelves, and who wish to see more of their favorite books, today is your lucky day! Here is a DIY project that can transform your staircase (yes, you read that right) into a huge bookshelf. But you have to be ready to sacrifice your carpet for something more creative and original. If you’re willing to do that, read on.
Before you start working on anything, you must first choose which books to include. This part of the planning process is essential because this step will let you decide on the colors and materials that you’ll need. Once you finish choosing books, you’re ready to start!
Here’s how you can transform your stairs in 12 steps:
I suggest you watch this video if you want to find out how to do this step properly. Remember to be careful! Don’t injure yourself.
Choose the colors that you want to use. Four-ounce tubes of acrylic paint should be enough. Make sure to buy two tubes of off-white acrylic paint.
Make sure that you grab an acrylic sealant on your way to the nearest craft shop. You’ll need to paint a layer of sealant over each step to protect the paint from the daily wear and tear. Painting the steps with sealant will also allow you to wash off any scruff marks.
Choose a color for each step, and decide where each book should go.
Once you’ve finished deciding which is which, start painting! Begin with the base coat and color your way with each step.
Don’t forget to give the risers two coats of paint. Once you’re finished, let the paint sit overnight to allow it to dry.
The trick here is to make sure that the text is properly centered. You wouldn’t want to accidentally write too far left or too far right, right? What you can do is measure the width of the steps and mark the center with a tiny dot using a pencil. If your steps measure 40 inches across, then you should place the dot at the 20-inch mark.
Make sure that each letter and each space is the same size. Count the letters in each title and make sure that it will look even.
Add extra designs on the ‘spines.’ Of course, these designs will depend on the books that you’ve chosen.
Add your own designs here and there.
Hey, this is your project. Why don’t you add your own personality to your books?
Take a deep breath, and admire your handiwork!
Cool idea, huh? Now, I can’t wait to try this!
