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

  13. I was wondering what you used to paint the eyes nose and mouth?
    I recently passed up some piggy banks on clearance at Target, Reg $9.99 clearance for $2.50. I was kicking myself when I ran across this post not even a week later!!
    I planned ahead though, and got some christmas ones on clearance, not as good of a sale, $5, but still excited to customize 2. If I remember Ill share pics if youd like :D
