Bookends aren't just functional, they also add style to your shelves, mantle or where ever they are displayed! As much as we love them, they can also be fairly expensive, which is why we decided to DIY our own set using pieces of cut wood for a chic rustic look. Put the hammer and nails away and get out Aleene's Industrial Strength Glue Sticks for this easy custom wood bookends DIY that'll have you wondering what else you can glue around the house!
