Edit->Preferences->"Side Pane" and set both "Icon Size"s to "Very Small". In the right pane, you can use Ctrl+"Mouse Scroll Wheel" to adjust the size.

i'm only talking about the toolbar buttons (under the menu), for which there is no option to customize icons size. the side pane or the right pane are not a problem because i know i can customize them just like you said.
here is another screenshot where i have marked dhe toolbar: http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/9...eenshotvyo.jpg

Sorry - dumb answer. I think the solution lies in "icon themes", set via Settings->"User Interface"->"Icon Theme". Good luck!

Note the solution (from http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3971) is;

1. Modify or Create file "$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0"
(or modify the configuration file already in "$HOME/.themes/_your_current_gtk_theme/gtk-2.0" if this folder exists)

2. add the following text;
gtk-icon-sizes = "gtk-menu=16,16:\ngtk-button=22,22:\ngtk-dnd=22,22:\npanel-menu=16,16:\npanel=22,22:\ngtk-dialog=22,22:\ngtk-small-toolbar=22,22:"
