This was a project built/assisted by my daughter chloe. We went for daddys daily coffee walk this morning and decided to stop at home depot. While at the home depot I decided to grab one of the kids workshop projects which this week was the bookends. Pieces come pre made all it takes is assembly. Finger paint was Chloe’s personal touch :P

I love these! It is great to involve your daughter in woodworking and painting. She will thank you for it in the future.

very nice! My son and I make trucks out of 2×4’s from time to time and he loves painting them, your book ends look like they would match.
Have fun.

I have one of my youngest daughter’s paintings in the shed…a small reminder of when she was smaller and not a teenager…

Great project with the daughter, and a set of bookends you will treasure for a lifetime, can’t beat that at all.
