Readers Dislike Lauren Conrad’s Bookshelf Box Craft Video

Reality television star and author Lauren Conrad earned 1,848 dislikes on YouTube for a craft video showing her fans how to chop up books and create a storage space using dissected book spines. UPDATE: The video has since been removed.

In the video, Conrad calmly dismantled a copy of A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket to create a “Bookshelf Box”–what do you think of her project?

Here’s more from her site: “In this episode of Crafty Creations I’ll be showing you a clever and resourceful way to recycle old, used books into a unique storage space … I love this DIY because it’s a great solution for stowing away unsightly items that may be lurking on your shelves—remotes, chargers, etc.”

Conrad (pictured, via) has published multiple bestsellers with HarperCollins, including:  L.A. Candy, Sweet Little Lies and Sugar and Spice.

The author also launched her own book club, currently reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn with her fans. (Via Writers Digest & BuzzFeed)
