Pimp Your Bookends

Ha ha, I have to laugh at my clearly unimaginative title. But I couldn't think of a better name when I saw the horses that Nicole Hill Gerulat just pimped and shared on her blog. She picked them up at Homegoods in this sort of coppery color and viola! from copper to eye-popper! Now that made me laugh again because I sounded soooo HGTV, right? Maybe I should just let the pictures speak for themselves...

Before/After

I bet you will think twice the next time you spot some shabby bookends at the thrift store. If they have a great silhouette just paint those bad boys and rock 'em!

And a big P.S. -- Are you not absolutely green over her massive Penguin classic book collection? I am!
