The BIG Reveal (painting a little tykes car tutorial)

The other day when we were at the local thrift shop with Funky Junk Sister #1 (aka Mom) we found this old discarded Little Tykes/Step 2 car. It was only $1.99
 so we snatched it up real fast! We weren't quite sure what to do with it 
so we went cruising on Pinterest to see if others had any ideas. 
We found a whole bunch of  "Pimp my Coupe" ideas!

Here's the before picture. We knew it was gonna be for this little guy, 
he watched the whole process from the screen door.

We wanted our coupe to be purple since we all are BIG Washington husky 
fans around here. 
We used regular spray paint with a primer first. 

Here's the BIG reveal...

We used a white paint pen to paint on the grill and the license plate. The tail lights were painted with our Funky Junk Sisters Paint in "red wagon" color. 
For the final touch we painted the hubcaps gold. We did put a clear coat 
on the paint pen and the tail lights to protect them. 
The WOOF decal and the musical key ring came from the Husky bookstore. 

In this picture you can see the "woof" gas cap. 
We used a button pin for it and we just super glued it on.
He loves it!
