Too many books on your hands? or too many just sitting on your floor? Hang ‘em up!
You can make a book rack out of a cheap wire hanger–yes, a wire hanger. Basically, you’re turning a triangle into a rectangle with a few well placed bends.
1. Start with the legs of the wire hanger’s triangle. Bend midway through each leg.
2. Pull down on the base to stretch it out. Straighten out the sides and bend two new corners into the base.
3. Fold the wire hanger in half (think hamburger, not hot dog), making sure to leave enough room at the bend to hold your book.
All that’s left is to hammer in a nail and hang your rack. Voila! You’re a cheap, er, economical college student.
