This is definitely a DO!

Henry Allen Gold Piggy Bank, $190
Ever since I spotted Harry Allen's golden piggy bank in a feature about interior designer Rita Konig's apartment, in the now defunct but beloved Lucky Magazine, I have been obsessed with it. Despite many attempts to save enough pennies to buy said pig, the frugal side of me continually resisted the urge to fork over two "Benjamins" for it.

But alas, I discovered this super inspiring diy blog called P.S. - I Made This by Erica Domesek.  In her super easy and clever tutorial, she describes how to transform old boring items that you may have lying around in your house into metallic wonders worth drooling over. 

As soon as I find out where to buy metallic spray paint in NYC, I am so doing this! Get ready to see a plethora of before and after pictures.
