ABC bookends

I have been trying for MONTHS to figure out what to do with Lil d's books.  I decided I wanted to put them on top of his headboard/bookshelf so I was on the look out for bookends.  Man was that a pain...I got it in my head that I wanted some sort of boxes to put on either end...everything I found was $20 plus dollars and I didn't want to spend that much to then paint them, etc...until I found these...

I found the set of 3 for $5 at the local thrift store...a little sanding...some paint...and a few letters and...

I got these...



I LOVE when what I picture in my head works out, and the whole project only cost $9!
