DIY Bookends

24 Feb

I came across this idea for making bookends out of old bricks and spray paint and I had to try it. It’s such a cute and easy project that looks super cool on a desk or  bookshelf. I might just have to buy more books so I can have these in every room of my house 🙂

{Start by covering bricks with a towel, and then using a hammer to chip the surfaces to create an uneven, aged effect.}

{I hammered a little too hard and the brick broke in half but I kinda like how it turned out.}

 {I used a coat of primer first then a couple of coats of metallic spray paint.}
