Bookend Makeover

Morning All, 

Remember those awesome awesome bookends I thrifted?



Well they got a makeover with some chalk paint.


How freaking awesome are they!! I love that I can stash my stationary in there as well. Note the cute houndstooth notepads, my gorgeous friend Amy at While Wearing Heels, sent them to me in a box of goodies she collected. Does she know me or what??

DIY Delight or Disaster? I might actually do the unthinkable and throwl in a squeal...nope can't do it, but I am pretty darn happy with these babies, LOVE 'EM, delight!

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  7. I really like them painted. I wouldn't have wanted them w/the wood finish (and I usually love wood finish), but I would definitely want them in white! Well done. :)

  9. Oh I was coveting those when you first showed them and now I'm coveting them even worse!! Those are great Mel and I knew you'd do something great with them. And yes...I'd say Amy knows you pretty well! I'll squeal for you!
