Painting the Dino Gold, I'm Painting the Dino Gold!

Never fails. This song always goes through my head when I'm painting something an unnatural color. Totally off topic - but how do they splash paint everywhere and it doesn't stick to them? I mean, it basically just gets on the white flowers and the ground. I want whatever magic tape they're using!

Anyway, my most recent unnatural colored painting project was this cute ferocious little dino.

I found him randomly tossed in The Dollar Spot at Target. He was hanging out with another one of his dino buddies in a bin of teeny flower pots. I'm not even sure that he originally even belonged in The Dollar Spot. I decided he needed to be adopted... and painted gold. (Yes, I left his friend. Our home just wasn't right for him.)

Once the weather finally got above 40 degrees (end of April, no joke), I took him outside for a quick spray painting with Rustoleum's Metallic Gold spray paint. (Out of all the paints at the store, this one looked like it'd have the shiniest finish.) I sprayed his top sides, then came back to him about a half hour later to get his belly and feet.

So for about $5 and 5 minutes of my time, I've got this awesome gold dinosaur that satisfies my cravings for all the brass animals I've been dying for lately.

I love that he's a little touch of gold - which I like, and a little touch of "boy" - which I'm sure Husband likes, though he mostly just thinks I'm weird for spray painting a $1 toy gold.

I'm not sure where' he's going to go yet. The office?

The living room?

What do you think?
