Fun With Spray Paint

Last week I picked up these little wiener dog figurines at Hobby Lobby (yes, I know they're called daschands but it's more fun to say wiener).  I thought they'd make cute book ends for Isaac's room, but they needed to be brightened up.  So out came the spray paint ~

I figured while I was at it, I might as well spray some other stuff too, so I rounded up some
plastic animals ~

And went to town spraying ~

Sweet set-up right?  I have to admit, I had a theme song of "I'm Ghetto and I Know It"  to the tune of LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It"  running through my head the entire time.

The "ugly guy" lives in Jack's room and the elephants are in the living room.  You can catch a glimpse of one elephant here.  I sprayed them bronze and I Love, Love how they turned out!  Even Matt was impressed, he thought they were metal until he picked one up.

I'm also pretty happy with my new bookends.  Here they are ~

And some colorful little friends ~

It's the small things that make me happy ~
