Antique-ified Owl

So we moved into our new home and my favorite space is the mini library. As we needed a lot of bookends, I asked my daughter what she thought would look good. She responded that she read in a home styling magazine not to get a plain, boring metal bookend. But since her dad had bought just that, I decided to decorate it on my own…simplest craft ever.

You will need:

Plain bookends

Decor with flat back (the cute owl was a garage sale find)

Pearl gold acrylic 

Glue gun

Paintbrush 

What to do:

1. Brush the decor with a coat of gold acrylic. Let it dry completely and then brush with another coat. (Best if original color still peeks through a little). 

2. Stick the decor to the bookends. 

Yeah, that’s it! P.S. I put the owl in the Harry Potter section of my library 👍
