Lacquered Animal Bookends

By  December 10, 2013

As you curl up with a great book this winter, consider neatening up that book collection too. These handmade lacquered animal bookends are a cute addition to a (pleasantly) crowded bookshelf. They’re easy to make—and the options of animals, objects, and colors are endless.



Items Needed: Plastic toy, brick, Gorilla glue, high-gloss spray paint, and high-gloss lacquer.


Adhere plastic toy to brick with Gorilla Glue.


Paint with high-gloss paint or spray paint.


Finish off with a coat of high-gloss lacquer.


Let dry completely.
