DIY: Gold & Pink Rock Bookends

Equestrian Styled Shelf

I believe that you can never have enough gold accessories & gold spray paint is probably my favorite craft supply. This shelf clearly builds my case. I made these pink & gold rock bookends for a decorating project  I’m currently working on in another room. For now they are residing on my craft shelf, another styling working in progress. 

DIY Gold & Pink Rock BookendsDIY Gold & Pink Bookend Supplies: 

Two rocks, similar sized with flat bottoms that will stand on their own. 

Spray paint, pick any color or colors that you would like. 

Adhesive felt pads for the bottom of the rocks so they do not scratch your shelving. 

The fun & hard part is finding your rocks – I went to the horse pasture in an area that I knew was rocky & was able to find two similar sized triangle rocks. If you don’t have access to a woods or pasture, there are plenty of places you can buy rocks from like landscaping supply companies but finding your own makes this project so much more rewarding. 

Clean off your rocks & spray paint them with your first color completely. 

Allow them to dry & “mist” the rocks with another color on top. I did a light coat of pink so that you could still see the gold underneath. 

Once the rocks are dry, put the felt pads on the bottom so they don’t scratch surfaces. 

Simple right? These rustic yet glam pieces look great!

    I did this, but the rocks aren’t heavy enough to hold up more than four books.
