DIY Bedroom Décor
If you love to read, but find that your books are always falling over and cluttering up your room, just make some custom bookends to keep your books up and add a bit of flair to your book display.

You can cover your bookends with anything you want, from scrapbook paper to acrylic paint! This project uses rhinestones, but if they aren’t your thing, studs, or even scrapbook paper and a bit of Mod Podge, would look great. These bookends will add that extra little touch to your books and make you want to sit down and read—especially if your mini-library comes with its own reading nook!
