DIY Turn your plastic robots into pure gold

 

Every now and then I get a bright idea and sometimes they really shine.

Among the many toys in our house we have several toy robots. Mostly from flea markets and happy meals. This summer I took them all out in our garden and spray painted them in a wonderful metallic gold from Montana. They look pretty darn amazing right now.

1. Collect some robots. 2. Give them a good cleaning. 3. Spray them-let them dry-spray them again. Repeat until they are covered.

De är ännu finare på bloggen än på instagram! Supersnygga! Jag försöker spara övergivna och färdiglekta favoriter, några har blivit lampfötter och några har blivit skattgömmor för småsaker, men de stora har vi inte lyckats göra något med. Du har löst vårt problem och vi ska genast inhandla mer sprayfär och skrida till verket! Ha en skön kväll!

They are so awesome! I love how the gold makes them into trophies or sculptures.
