Today's project is one I am stupidly, inappropriately giddy about, and I couldn't wait to share it with you! I'm also on a roll with the $2 project this week, since my only purchase was....wait for it.....
.....Plastic elephants from the dollar bin! I found these at the Target
|I originally planned to use stone tiles as the bases, but they were too small and not heavy enough to hold the weight of books.|
I didn't love the tusks, so I trimmed them off with scissors, then gave each animal a few light coats of spray paint. I wanted the rocks to sit straight, so I filed the bottoms down using our concrete driveway. A dot of super glue to the bottom of each foot adheres the plastic to the stone.
Here are the mighty elephants now!
I think my Living Room was getting too sweet, with all the soft blues and pinks, so I'm adding some pops of red to liven it up. The Elephant Bookends are the perfect addition to our Updated Bookshelves!
Oh, Elephant Bookends, how I love thee! (See, stupidly, inappropriately giddy!)
So are you off to raid your kid's toy closet, or the local dollar store? You can find these plastic animals everywhere! In fact, I can't seem to stop spraying them, and have another goodie to show you soon! As well as more red accents!
