Updated Bookends

A few weeks ago I found this pair of bookends at Goodwill..


I almost forgot to take the before picture so this is on my makeshift cardboard station in the garage..
seconds from being spray painted...


Just by spray painting them, they look brand new..
and so bright and fun...


I'm using them to hold up a small selection of my cookbooks...
the Betty Crocker cookbook is still the cookbook that many of my
cookie recipes come from as well as banana bread....


Guess when I took this picture, I forgot to move the bookends forward..


I added my Campbell Soup cookie jar and salt/pepper shakers
to the shelf...


(click here to see what's on the top shelf.)

Here's a look at the entire shelf..
the cookbooks and book ends look great together..

Wishing you a great week!
