Gold & Brass Animals {Love it!}

Has anyone else noticed the obsession with gold and brass animals recently? Tag it a spinoff from Harry Allen’s gold pig bank or not, I’m loving the gold and brass animalia we’re seeing these days. Of course, the real thing is always fabulous…

However, these DIY gold pieces are just as fun and whimsy…

I have shared my little DIY dinosaur before here, but here he is again… with a sprinkle of gold for legs!DIY painted dinosaur gold dipped legs

What do you you of this craze? To see more DIY gold / brass animals feel free to pop over to my accessories pin board or DIY pin board.

I love the touch of whimsy they add to a room no matter whether they are gold or not! I have a big painted deer head over my fireplace and its always quite the topic!

I love your take on this trend! So unique! I may have to bring the spray can out! Love it! I have a few brass dears I bought at a yard sale recently, may have to bring 'em out after this inspirational post. Thanks! :-)
