Display books

Got a favourite book? I do (a few) but I have one I’d like to display. So been looking around for ideas on how to display.

1. Stand on an Ikea lack shelf (but I am renting)

2. Put into a large shadow box (looking for one now… not easy to come by!)

3. Stand in a cookbook holder (don’t have desk space, would like to utilise the wall if possible)

Anyone have any other ideas??

    I had used these boxes from IKEA for decorating for a friend once. They come unfinished so you can paint them any color!!! I don’t know if your IKEA has them or not, but here is the link so you can atleast look at them.http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10099312
