Wanna know what's been done to death in blog land?
The painting of plastic animals.
In my own defense, I did hop on the bandwagon pretty early.
... I kind of thought I was done with them.
That is until I saw THESE. (<-- click that link!)
Be still my heart: painted animal keychains.
(I just had to make some.)
So I added screw-on eye rings to some dollar store dinosaurs. (I just did it with my fingers; no drill necessary.)
Then I got out my spray paint.
And my spray paint box. (Seen HERE.)
And I got to painting.
And while gold has been my paint color of choice for plastic animals in the past...
... I branched out a little this time.
And since I only have so many keys, I added a few gold dinos to these pretty little jars:
I might put them in my etsy shop...
...or I might add them to my new desk space...
...where they would go nicely with the newest addition to my office: Mr. Mouse. (He's a receipt spindle. Yes, I still keep my paper receipts. Don't judge.)
So while painted plastic animals have kind of been done to death, they still make my heart go pitter patter.
Here's hoping they don't go extinct any time soon ;)
