The location is The Library Place Apartments, adjacent to a public library in Everett, Washington.
this DIY headboard (and the apparent ease of execution), but I would prefer to have the covers showing, with the options of being able to arrange colors and patinas into a beautiful pattern. To me it would be a testament to the longstanding substance and stability of the book, and it would do my heart good to have that represented in a sculptural/functional creation (especially over the bed, my preferred place to read).
