If you go into your local craft store, or a ceramics store you can always find some really cute book ends. Buying them from a craft or ceramic store means that you can buy paints that will match your home decor and get pretty close to the colors you already have in your home. You can take them home, paint them, and then use them in bedrooms, living and family room spaces, as well as any other room you would like. Since you have a little more freedom in terms of color choices you can really use these wherever you want. You are also not limited to using things from the craft store as just book ends; you can also use them as paper weights, and decorative pieces in any of your living spaces. You can generally find wood, plastic, or ceramic crafts of angels, animals (Noah’s Ark), Jesus, and the list could go on.
