DIY Piggy Bank Bookends

I have always loved the look of white bookends, and animals seem so much cooler in white, don’t they? These images have been floating around in my head for a long time. While I was going through the boys’ toys lately I had an idea for how I might be able to replicate these without spending a penny!

When the boys were young they received quite a few piggy banks as gifts, and many of them are now too babyish for the boys. While I was filling a box with toys to give away I came across these, and I thought that all they really needed was a coat of spray paint to be pretty fantastic bookends! And when they’re filled with coins they’re nice and heavy!

Do you have piggy banks from when your kids were smaller? I’d love to hear if you re-purpose yours!
