Shabby Bookends

Hey everyone, it's Thursday and I'm a little late with this post.  Anyways, I had a pair of scroll y bookends that were all brown and were a little boring.  No pizazz!  Just plain ole brown.  I had bought them at a vendors garage sale and thought who couldn't use some bookends!!!!!!!! Here is the before picture:

The bookends had so many grooves and dips that I thought that I would add pink paint(acyrlic) all over it.  Than I took a wet and sometimes a dry rag and began wiping all the excess paint off until I got the desired result.  I protected the surface with a polyacyrlic varnish and one that would not discolor the bookends.  Here is the after picture which I really like, what about you?????????????  Until next time, Dianne..
