When Michelle from Sweet Suite 10 spotted a shelf of lion garden statues at Dollarama, she initially passed them by.  After all, her condo doesn’t have any kind of garden space in which to display them.  She went back and snagged them, however, after she was struck with a brilliant idea: turn them into bookends!  Her inspiration was a pair of white owl bookends she’d found with a $40 price tag.  Her lions cost just $2 each, with a makeover coming in at just a few bucks more.  [how to turn garden statues into bookends]

Project estimate:

  • Animal lawn statues, about $4 and up
  • Rocks, on hand or $1
  • Paper towel, on hand
  • Cardboard, on hand
  • Spray paint, on hand or $1 and up
  • Felt, on hand or about $0.33

Total:  about $4 and up
