DIY: Mr. Lion

< Meet Mr.  newly-painted-gilded-Lion >

As many of you wonderful 3P readers know, I am drawn to very simple DIY projects (see here).  A quick makeover of items currently on hand always makes me so happy to know that I can have a "new" item in no time flat.  Enter, gold spray paint.  When I decided to brighten up this lion that has been around for a while, I pictured gold as the perfect color to brighten up this majestic cat.  Now, just a few easy coats of spray paint later, I am enjoying this 'new' gold lion!

< He started off all black, and I decided to brighten him up with a little splash of golden color >

< He got an initial coat of white paint as a base >

 < Then a smattering of gold was applied >

 < Hooray for spray paint!  here is Mr. Lion, chilling with this little lamb for now.  Loving this new gold decoration in our place! >
