Unless it’s something literally hanging on the wall, I don’t have anything in the house that is not useful in addition to being decorative.
Except for two little cuties. Here is one of them.
Look at that little face. Irresistible even though he’s plastic.
They came from the dollar bins at Target, back when I was finishing up my office/guest room. I needed two things in there: decorative elements and pink. With the room being such a tiny space and so full of stuff, anything I added needed to be bold and minimal.
As cute as these little guys are, they aren’t bold and minimal or pink. So they were spray painted.
They look a little creepy from this angle with their eyes painted pink like that. Hmm…
Yes, the dog looked better in black and white, BUT, he would have gotten lost on the shelf. And getting lost on the shelf would have just ended up adding more clutter. This way, he stands out and gets attention and brings some bright balance to the room.
(The office has gotten a few updates since this photo, posts are being prepared to update you!)
Those two really do have an impact on the room. And they only cost a few dollars. Totally worth it.
Have you ever used toys as decor in your house?
