We recently moved to the country and while tilling up the field which will eventually be our grassy yard, we came across hundreds of these stones. It seemed like such a natural idea to use a couple of these fieldstones for a project. After some thinking and consulting with my sister, I finally decided on bookends. The rocks were free and I already had plenty of paint on hand, so I got to work.

After a few minutes of drying, these Painted Fieldstone Bookends were ready for use. I put them in my son’s room to hold up several of his favorite Shel Silverstein books next to his bed for easy access.
