plastic is fantastic (well, it can be)

We don’t go much for plastic toys around here but LOVE these ideas to incorporate them into storage and decor pieces.

To make these storage jars, just glue a selection of plastic animals onto the lids then spray paint the lot.  Love ’em.

These book ends are a little bit kitsch and a whole lot fabulous!  Grab your favourite animals, glue them to a wooden block and paint.  Great shade of blue.

These little gems have come straight from the op-shop into the paint shop and onto the hallway shelf.  LOVE!

AND, I am loving these shelves.  Think I could do a whole wall of them.

If you like things a little fancier, you’ll love these boxed vintage cars – not so great for playing but a beautiful way to display a special few.

Right then.  I’m off to clear a path through the car park that is my lounge room floor, and maybe whip up one of these creations.

PS: If your little one is car crazy, then you’ll probably like some of this stuff from our little store
