Goodwill DIY

This little Goodwill DIY only requires two items:  a set of bookends from Goodwill and some spray paint.  I think I paid $2.50 for the bookends (or maybe it was $2.50 each).  Either way you can’t beat the price!!  I have been on the lookout for bookends for a looong time!  I finally came across these adorable lions.  They looked great in gold but I wanted something with a little more presence.  This DIY would work great with any piece of ceramic that may not match your home decor.  A little paint adds a lot of punch!

I didn’t prime them because I liked the gold underneath and so I wasn’t concerned if it came through a little.

I love how they turned out!!

I picked up some books at Goodwill also. I love how the simple orange lines on the spine really shine with the bookends. Books are a beautiful and inexpensive addition to any home decor. Goodwill is full of beautiful books. Come take a look.
Goodwill to Gorgeous!
