The Easiest and Cheapest Home Accessory, EVER….?!

By Hollie Brooks @MiaFleur_home

There is quite a trend going on for decorative accessories (usually in gold) of various creatures and insects so we thought it would be fun to have a go at spray painting some children’s plastic toys to get the same effect at a fraction of the price. Hence the easiest and cheapest home accessory ever title.

These cute plastic toys came in an assorted bag full from Amazon for the princely sum of £8.99.

5 minutes outside with a tin of gold spray paint and we now have a gold creature each for our desks. Can you guess who was allocated which creature? Amelia made the decision for us – crab for Hollie (snap, snap) lobster for Amelia (no suntan possible, just a delightful shade of red) and I get the turtle because apparently I’m placid. Well I’ve always likened myself to Henry Kissinger. Being the mother of five hones those peace keeping skills!

I’ve saved the dolphin, seal and whale for my impeding grandson’s bath time as I thought a small gold seal would look a bit odd on the desk and they didn’t have the same meaning for us.
