DIY Painted Animal Figurines

 Lately, it seems as though we are living in the gilded age with all the gold decorative accessories we've seen in interiors--from flatware to seat cushions and everything in between. For those of us who can't shell out for 24k however, a few slick coats of gold paint can liven up any tired object with a contemporary twist. We decided to give the Midas touch to a very old toy found in the basement and turn him into a chic bookshelf accessory.
