I was bursting at the seams to share this project and today is the day! I love lacquered anything, but this cute little animals in a lovely deep blue are such a welcome addition to my office. They were so so simple to make and the options of animal, object, and color are endless. I think I might even make a few for gifts!
I simply used Gorilla Super Glue to adhere a plastic toy to a brick, painted with a high gloss paint and finished it off with a high gloss lacquer top coat. Easy, huh?
I had so much fun playing around with styling them and thought the monkey’s faces were humorous. I really wanted to find horses or a lion, but truth be told, finding the toy to use was the hardest part of this project. I ended up using dog toys, but I think a trip to a large toy store probably would have yielded good results as well.
So what do you think? Silly? Fun? Can I say chic?
Have a wonderful Thursday!
