This week at Goodwill I found a pair of fleur de lis bookends for $1.95 each.
They were a very strange "decorater-ish" shade of gold. I love gold, but this was a little too fake looking for my tastes. Today we were blessed with GORGEOUS 70+ degree weather, and soooo of course I grabbed some spray paint and painted the bookends a shimmery bronze-gold color.
They came out great!
Not sure yet where on my new fireplace bookcases I'll keep them on, but they do look so pretty in our living room. In the picture above they're up against our Calvin's Commentary set.
