Aren’t Elephants Good Luck?

If this little cutie is going in Kelly's toy room, I can't imagine what the rest of the room looks like. Can I just hang out in your home for a day and browse. Better yet, can I shop?

That’s what went through my mind as I spotted this beauty at the Goodwill.  Then I Checked the tag and discovered it was part of the $1.00 sale- Elephants are good luck.  Now, even though he was handcrafted and solid wood, I thought he looked a little plain.  So I picked out some scrapbook paper, took him a part, traced each piece (front and back), gave him a nice spray of white paint, used some Mod Podge and turned him into a real cutie.


He looks great in our toy room!  And for Less than $3.00 I  think he looks very Anthropologie-esque.  Hope you enjoyed. Kelly  

I'm sharing this for frugal friday at shabby nest 


  1. Kelly, seriously girl. You are famous.

  2. Hi Laura! I am now learning about blogging and can now get your updates on an RSS feed (go me!) I did want to tell you though about a great children's book about Elmer the Elephant. It would be very appropriate for a room decorated with such an elephant as yours. (oh I realize this is a Kelly post -- but nevertheless I can read you regularly now!)
