I was rather pleased with how these turned out, so I decided to post a few pictures of the bookends that I hand-painted for a good friend of mine for Christmas. I'm not really a painter, but when I bought them they were kind of a bland off-white, and I thought it'd be fun to splash some color on there! Here is the finished product:
In the process, I found out that the painting was actually really nice therapy. I'm keeping my eye out now for more fun little projects like this.
