    Why do I always get "requested video cannot be found", when trying to watch the Dan Made episodes? (Also with Design Happens)

    I like the idea a lot! Easy instructions to follow. I will tweak it a little for my taste but then that's the beauty of customizing for your personal space. Actually I'm going to make this and place it in our business. ;)

    Would look so much better with a decent shade or that one covered.

    For the people who are sensitive to hoarding books to read, donate and send to our troups all over the world, bravo. However, for the people that love books in other ways, want to keep them for their libraries or for re-purposing, bravo. To each their own. If you aren't interested in decorating with them, don't. There are plenty to go around. Everyone loves books in different ways, just like people love people in different ways. Let love grow, no matter what. We are individuals :)

    Awesome. This is so easy and a great way to use old books to decorate with!

    Dan is such a cutie, full of creative ideas. I can't get enough!
