brass pony diy

i've been on the look out for a small brass horse,

but never seemed to find one I liked!

insert 50 cent plastic horse from the consignment store, 

a little gold paint I had on hand...

and voila. brass pony. 

thank you very much.

easy, and considerably cheaper.

i love thrifting!

using spray paint probably would've been easier, but my gold craft paint worked just fine!

If you try something similar, link up in the comments so I can see!


  1. Ooh! I love the gold paint, I think it came out really well!

  2. What a great idea! I would have never though of doing that - turned out great :)


  3. I've been hearing a lot about the virtues of gold spray paint lately. I have to say, this is really fetching.

  4. perfect perfect perfect! I might have to do a little copycat action with this one:-) xoxo

  5. This is so perfect! It would look so great in my room... thus it begins my search for the perfect iron horse ;)
