If your books need something to lean on, go look for free decorative bookends on the beach!
I'm sold on this handsome block of driftwood spotted here -and it does double duty as a little gallery space.
And of course beach rocks make great decorative bookends!
Or a vase (the heavier the better) filled with pretty shells. This and above via Real Simple.
A jar filled with seaglass works too! Seen at Apartment Therapy.
And in case you should stumble upon a giant shell (you never know), Martha Stewart shows you how you can turn it into a decorative bookend -simply fill it with plaster. This project was previously featured on Beach Crafts where I listed some of my favorite things from online magazines.
And why not glam it up with paint! Seen here.
Make Wooden Bookends with Shells
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! If you should go to the beach, maybe you'll find a great bookend!
