I'm a big fan of foxes. (This love predates the moment foxes are/were having, so the fact that they are everywhere is kind of bittersweet. That might be a little hipster-esque of me, but I don't care!) The Cat is a fan too. We have them kind of throughout the house... drawn in closets, pictures on the wall, etc., so it was only natural that I fell in a little bit of love with the line of bar ware and accent pieces that Target introduced last year. You know the one... with the fox tray and little fox figurines?
Well, I got two of the fox figurines. (Then my sister got me three more for Christmas- she found them on clearance for less than $3 each! And she got me the tray.) I knew I wanted to do something to the figurines, to tweak them. Now, don't get me wrong; I liked the little faux wood foxiness they had going on.
But I have so damn many of them now (I think my total of that little guy is at three!) that I knew I could take a chance and change him up. I decided to go for the gold.
Liquid gold, that is. (Har har.)
I was really surprised by how easily the liquid gold leaf went on.
So there you have it. An easy way to glam up your Target fox. I've got a few more of these guys to play around with, so I think they're pretty much all getting a makeover of some sort!
