Lucas has a lot of books. He has them here, he has them there, he has them a little bit of everywhere.
A small collection of board books, his favorite ones now live on top of his toy shelf. I really wanted to find some fun bookends, but I didn’t want to spend a fortune on such a novelty piece.
These are so cool. I felt they were maybe a bit mature and at nearly $50, I was not in love.
If you love them you can find them here.
I also found these cute mice on Amazon. They are super adorable, I almost ordered them. But again, at almost $50 I was not sold.
Here is my solution since I am being so budget minded, you know since we are remodeling our kitchen and all.
I rummaged through the boys bins of toy dinosaurs and found two with similar scale and detail.
Then I went to Home Depot and bought two pieces of wood with bevelled edges in the crown molding section. I am not sure what these pieces are originally intended for but they were perfect for this project.
I spray painted the bases and then the dinos. Then simply hot glued the toys to the wood to create instant bookends. The price? Approx $2 for each of the wood pieces and a can of spray paint, which I happened to already have on hand.
I pretty much LOVE them. They hold up the books, they are cute, they make you want to say RAWR, what is not to love?
