Book iPhone Dock

{Pinterest Challenge}
My dad hates the internet.  He made this declaration while we were making this book iPhone dock.

He asked me where I got the idea and I told him the internet {more specifically Pinterest but he didn't need to know that little detail.}  To him, the internet is the place I find all kinds of crazy ideas and then ask for his help in completing the projects.  {like this one}  I didn't originally intend to involve him in this project but his help was definitely appreciated {as was his drill and knife.}

Like I said, I found this tutorial by Little Lovies on Pinterest.  Being an avid book reader, this project was practically screaming my name.  I even knew of a great place to get some old books perfect for this - my parent's house.  They had a collection of Reader's Digest Condensed Books gathering dust in one of the bedrooms.  With my mom's permission, I selected a couple of books {my criteria was mainly color but I also considered the titles a little.}

My dad got roped into helping because I was there getting the books and it just made sense {to me, probably not so much to him.}  And his number of drilll bits is significantly larger than mine.

I would say this project was a little more involved than I had anticipated and patience is a definite must.  But I am very happy with it.

What do you think?

I am sharing at these parties.
