Glamour Magazine Suggests a Stack of Art Books as a Cheap, Alternative Flat Screen TV Stand

Stack of Books As a TV Stand: Love It or Leave It?


Want a budget TV stand made from materials you probably already have in your house? This month's Glamour suggests that you stack some books on the ground and place your (obviously flat screen) TV on top of it.

While this is definitely an interesting idea, I don't know if I'd have gone for it when I was shopping for a TV stand. While the art books are pretty big and it looks pretty sturdy, I would still have a big fear of the TV tipping, especially if someone walked by it and bumped it somehow.

My stability fears aside — it's kind of cute! Especially if you're a book lover, as I am (although you're obviously not going to be reading those ones for a while).

What do you think? Unwise and not cute, or safe enough and pretty cute?
