Today's tutorial was inspired by our constant hunt to find any nook and cranny to stash books. Hopefully, this will cut down on the random piles of books that tend to accumulate on our nightstands.
This is a perfect gift for the bookworm in your life. My favorite part? It can be done with less than $10. For my set however, it only cost $2.82. If you'll remember, in my last post I mentioned how I tried to do tutorials that utilized the same materials to cut down on the cost. Because I already had the spray paint and glue, it shaved $8.00 off the cost. Not too shabby.
For this project you will need:
- Two bricks ($0.41 a piece at Lowes)
- Spray paint (color of your choice)
- Two figurines ($1.00 a piece at the Dollar Tree)
- Glue (preferably E-600 or liquid nails)
First, glue your figurines to the top of the brick. Wait at least 30 minutes for the glue to set.
Once the glue is dry, spray paint the bookends. Allow the spray paint to dry. Spray at least two more coats. Allow the bookends to dry.
Next, step back marvel at how ridiculously simple this project was and reorganize your overflowing bookshelves.
