Best of Bookends!

Written on August 10, 2012 at 10:00 am , by

Every home is much improved when it’s filled with well loved books.  I admire any well styled bookcase that incorporates found objects and also smart, stylish bookends.  Not just for function, bookends are that fabulous opportunity to inject sophistication or whimsy, or to tell a story about travel adventures or place your personal style on display.

  1. I love all of these unusual bookends! I have a pair of white ones that look like beadboard, I know, BORING. I have been wanting to paint them some fun colors and use the lines in the beadboard to make stripes. I bet you could find a pair of funky plastic or metal animals at a yard sale or thrift store and spray paint them and attach them to a piece of matching wood and make your own! Of course, they would have to be heavy enough. Have you ever made your own bookends this way?
