DIY Bookend Makeover

Woohooo it's the weekend guys! This will be my first easy peasy DIY project I want to share with you. It's so simple, all you have to do is find a lacquer spray paint and paint an old bookend to make it look new again. I found this really cool horse head bookend. It had so many scratches I decided I could hide them and make it look even cooler by painting it white.

Lacquer spray paint- $4.98

SOOOOO many scratches! I would have never bought this if I didn't have the idea to paint it.

A couple coats and...

Tadaaaaa! Isn't it Beautiful! I have no space for it so guess's for sale in my etsy shop. What I would do, to prevent the bookend from falling over, is place a small "L" bracket in the back so the books sit on the bracket for more stability.
This project is a reminder that everything has potential to look pretty again.
If you have any bookend projects i'd love to see them.
Have fun!
