What do you all think of this? I needed a side table to place a lamp in the living room. The hubby asked me to find a temporary solution until we found a perfect side table to go with the rest of our decor. I had previously piled up some magazines in the bedroom, which I kind of used as a side table. I tried to do the same thing in the living room and for some reason the table made from thinner magazines didn't look good holding the lamp on it. So I decided to make use of all the big fat engineering books from school which have been nicely resting in a box in the closet for the last five years. (I'm sure my professors and my smart and able engineering buddies who still use these books for work, would be appalled to see this.)
I think I like this look and may as well make this a permanent fixture and not look for a side table anymore. Do you guys think this is a good idea?
I looked around and found others who had similar ideas,
