I was one of those girls who just LOVED horses. I lived in the suburbs and we definitely didn't have room for a horse. But my love of horses led me to collect Breyer toy horses. I had these horsed lined up on a book shelf. Many years later, I have found some vintage Breyer horses like the ones I use to collect. I have updated them using white and gold paint giving them a fun new look.
This is a fun DIY if you have some vintage plastic horses.
First I spray-painted the plastic horses with white gloss paint. I lightly spayed the paint on the horses.
I did about four coats of paint and let the paint dry between each coat.
Then I painted the hooves and part of the leg with liquid gold leaf. I was able to just dip each leg into the bottle of paint. I only needed to do one coat of the gold paint.
I think these horses look updated and have a fun modern style. This is an easy DIY project you can do yourself. Or you can purchase this set in my shop here.
This antique style brass spy glass really works. It's about 4 inches long when extended and it collapses to a length of about an inch. A brass star charm adds to its fun. Enjoy the summer night sky looking at constellations with this star-gazer spyglass pendant.
