These DIY dinosaur bookends are fun additions to your children’s bedroom!

You’ve probably heard someone say there are just too many books but very little time to read them all. Bibliophiles – or book lovers, if you may – can totally relate. My mom has a huge collection of books. With the aim of having my kids follow her book-loving footsteps, she brought them books, too. A lot, actually, that I was forced to organize them or they’ll end up scattered everywhere.

The kids wanted a “non-adult looking” bookcase. In their language, that translates to “fun.”
