DIY Vinyl-Buchstützen aus alten Platten


 

Bei DIYLife gibt's eine einfach Anleitung, um aus alten Platten diese absolut supercoolen Vinyl-Buchstützen zu machen.

What you need:

  • Two vinyl albums
  • Enough hot water to fill the sink or a container and cover the bottom half of the album
  • Felt (or other fabric) to glue onto the base, to avoid scratching furniture
  • Glue
  • Rubber gloves (for safety's sake! I didn't wear these, but you might want to.)

 

What you do:

  1. Boil lots of water to pour into the sink or the giant pan.
  2. Dip the album into the water up to the bottom of the label, making sure your outside label is straight.
  3. Start bending the album as it softens.
  4. Take a utensil, and flatten the edges that are in the water as they start to ripple.
  5. Remove the right angle album from the hot water and continue to flatten and smooth the bent end.
  6. Cut a piece of felt to fit on the bottom of the album, and glue it to the bottom.
  7. Add these unusual bookends to your shelf, and enjoy the immortal life of the once dominant vinyl LP!
