Damask Piggy Bank

Pin It
Every now and again I find awesome treasures at Goodwill.  

Any thrifter will tell you it's hit and miss when you go thrifting!  

I found this little guy for $2...needs a little TLC!

To spruce him up, and make him fit for Miss J's room, all I needed was some primer and pink spray paint.

Here's the piggy during the transformation:

Here's Miss J's new pink piggy bank!

Very cute, but still missing something.....eyes, a nose and some decoration were in order!

If you read my blog regularly,  you know I LOVE damask!  

I went to Michael's and found some cuuuuute damask stickers.

Is this cute?  I love it!

At home on Miss J's bookshelf!

Total Cost:

   Piggy Bank-$2
Spray Paint- $0 (left over from other projects)
Stickers- $2

Total: $4
