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!
- Wood boards - cut to desired size and shape
- Wood stain in desired color
- Soft cloth for staining wood
If needed, cut wood pieces to desired size and shape. Lightly sand then use a soft cloth to apply wood stain according to stain instructions. Let dry completely.
Apply a layer of glue from the Industrial Strength Glue Stick onto base pieces according to glue instructions.
Firmly press pieces together.
Use a clamp to hold the wood pieces firmly in place while the glue sets.
Continue building bookends by applying glue to next section.
Clamp as needed and let bookends dry completely for time recommended in glue instructions.
Put your fab new bookends to use! Try adding decorative embellishments for an extra special touch!
