My first odd project was a cute, little owl figurine that the sellers left. Oh, did I say cute? I meant dull and a little on the lifeless side.
They weren’t hideous enough to be unsalvageable, but I could see chicness just dying to come out!
Quite honestly it took very little skill and even less time. I just spray painted the figurine from every angle, waited for it to dry and coated the heck out of it with some glossy spray finish.
I knew that I wanted to place it on my mantel, which also has several colorful bottles and other “whatnots.” I chose blue because the majority of the mantel colors are variations of yellow, orange and pink and I needed a color with some presence and weight.
I am no longer ashamed of these discarded love birds. And on a side note, aren’t you impressed with me for not using the word “hoot” in this post? So many puns were flying around in my head, but I just couldn’t be that ridiculous…at least not today. So, you’re welcome.
