DIY with gold spray paint

One of the things I love about Pinterest is it's ability to take something so simple and convert it into something beautiful for decor. Without all of the inspiration I've taken from Pinterest, I would have been at a loss for decorating my apartment. I've recently fallen for the look of white and gold together, and it's been on my to-do list to make these DIY gold magnets. Spray painting plastic toy animals has been popping up around Pinterest for a while, whether its simply for decor, or DIY-ing bookends, catchalls or jewelry holders. What's your take on it? Cheap, quirky, or classy?

I'd love to get your opinion!


  1. My favorite. Loving this trend! How cute is the hippo?!

  3. totally love this - there's actually a really great plastic animal topped jar over on jojotastic http://jojotastic.com/2013/06/20/darby-smart/ apparenlty Darby Smart sells it as part of a DIY craft kit but you could easily make it yourself. They'd be so chic in gold (and functional too)!
