Toy to Trinket Makeover - Part I

After another day of picking up toys, I realized that a bunch of the girls' storage bins were filled with toys that they never play with for the simple reason that they have out grown them.  I love downsizing the number of unused items around our house but I saw some potential in the two toys (a wooden teether and a plastic teether/toy) below.  
 
Today I'm going to post about the first toy to trinket makeover - using the plastic object.
 
Nice shapes...lots of possibilities!
I thought the outer-spacey feel of this toy might be a good little object to add to our bedroom dresser. So I bought some metallic gold spray paint and got to work.


The "BEFORE".
After two light (mostly even) coats I got the look I was after. 


Love how it adds some (more) quirkiness to our bedroom dresser...
 
 
 
I'll post the second toy to trinket makeover with the wooden teether on Thursday!

Like the idea of rejuvenating the trinkets this way - but thought you were into down-sizing and clearing out? Seems to me you're finding another way to keep things!

The thought is there, anyhow - isn't it?
