DIY Book Ends

If you follow us on instagram (pinstersisters), then you already know that I spent the past weekend being crafty. I started by making custom book ends.

I got the idea from this pin that originally comes from PBteen:

PB Teen
Instead of LOVE I wanted my book ends to say READ. So I went to ACMoore and gathered my supplies:

I went with smaller letters because I wanted to put them on my book shelf. I feel like bigger letters would have looked odd on the shelf. 

I painted them yellow to match my comforter. It took about 4 coats.

Once they were dry, I glued them together using wood glue. And ta da, you’re done!

The Pottery Barn Teen bookends cost $39. These only cost me $11.13!

Letters ($1.29 each)       $5.16
Wood Glue                         $4.99
Spongue brush                      .39
Yellow Paint                          .59
Total                              $11.13!

Aren't they cute? Super easy and super cheap!
