Hey there folks today I am please to be teaming up with Stacy from “Not Just a Housewife” and “The Crafting Chicks”! Here is how it works, we all took the same items and used/staged them in our own homes, and gave them our own little flavor!
For this #STYLEDX3 we all used Polished Agate Geode Halves Bookends . Of course you all know me, “I simply can’t leave well enough alone”, I decided I wanted to make a “platform”if you will for the Geodes to sit on. The great part about this simple project is that it can lend itself to nearly any design style!

So let’s get started ? I used a bunch of scrap boards that I ripped down to approximately 1/2″ x 3/4″ x 7″. The biggest thing, is that you make all the the pieces of scraps exactly the same. (It will ensure they fit together snugly in the joint.)
Then it was just a matter of puzzle piecing them together. I used wood glue and clamps to hold the pieces together.
I actually want to keep the staggered ends, but I did not really plan properly, and made them a little too big. Easy fix, I just cut them down on the mitersaw.
This is the result. Look how cool that spine on this ?!
This is how the ends look, I kind of love it!
Now, here is the fun part, you can switch out the accent piece to fit the season/style as well.
All in all, I will say this is a win. I loved working with all of these talented ladies! Make sure you drop in to see how they styled their Polished Agate Geode Halves Bookends as well!
