Hoot Hoot Hooray! I heart Owls!

Last month I picked these brass owls up at a thrift shop. I thought they were so cute but I hate the look of brass. I knew that there was something I could do to bring so life to them!

These are not the original owls in the picture, but similar.  I bought my owls before I began blogging so I never got a "before" picture in!

So I spray painted these owls white, not really expecting much... And this is how they turned out:

They turned out ok, but they were so boring! So they sat around for a while waiting for me to do something with them. Then finally I decided they needed some well deserved attention! 

Here is how they turned out:

Much better, don't you think? Now I just have to find these guys a home!

FYI: The cost breakdown:

Brass Owls = $5.00
Paint (already had) = $0.00

Total Cost = $5.00

Thanks for stoping by!

  6. Owls and spray paint - who knew it could be so cute! I think we craft the same way - try something, see if we like it, change it up, like it better! Thanks for linking up to WWWW!
