Diy Book Bookends

Upgrade Simple Shelves By Adding Decorative Moulding

I almost, almost posted a fall project today but couldn’t bring myself to do it!  It just seems too rushed, like we can brush aside the last few weeks of Summer and I am not ready for that yet :).  School starts for us on next Monday and I have a list-of-all-those-things-we-planned-for-the-Summer-break-but-didn’t-quite-get-to, that requires some […]
