So I went to town and spray painted them completely.  In every groove they just came to life after that coat of paint.  Then I laced them up with a touch of Zebra Grosgrain Ribbon. 
So I had to add a little Bling to the inside of the wheels, cute little stone hearts in a hot pink.
How cute are these, I think they would look adorable just sitting on a shelf.  What do you think?  Maybe even Bookends.

With Roller Skating Making a big Comeback...I just could not resist to pick these up and jazz them up.  I first thought I could put these on a Wreath....uhhhhh I forgot how heavy Roller Skates are.  So that didn't work, then after I finished them I thought Oh how cute to make these Bookends or just to sit on the Book shelf it self.  How cute for any girl ...even that Roller Derby Girl.....ha ha .
