And the Silver goes to..

Have you ever walked into a store and spotted something that looked so simple to make yet the price tag was ridiculous? I've seen so many cute little figurines in silver and gold over the past year and decided to give some of the old plastic toy figurines a makeover. You can find small plastic animal figures at any toy or dollar store. My kids have tons of these which they never play with. With a quick spray of metallic paint I turned these cheap toys into a cute items which add a nice touch of bling to our bookshelf.

Cheap plastic toys being ignored by the kids, they were calling for some attention


One quick coat of spray and these guys were shining

The horse looks so much better here than lying in a pile of unused toys



What do you have in your home that you can makeover with a can of spray paint?


  1. It's amazing what a little spray paint can do a little plastic toy! So fun!

    following you !

  2. Cool!! Looks way classier in silver! Don't think my kid would be too happy if I did that to his animals though... =p


Thanks for your comments!!
