Ok, so who out there has a white ceramic owl perching on their bookshelf? I love how chic and modern these little owls look, but until now I hadn’t found the right one… for the right price. Until one day a few weeks ago I stumbled upon this cute little owl at Ross. It was $1o.99 and I knew I had to have it. I put this little guy in my shopping cart and drove home happy.
But the thing is, this isn’t what the owl looked like when I purchased it. What sat in my cart was definitely not very modern or chic. It actually looked like this…
I achieved this makeover by I giving my little owl one coat of spray primer and two coats of white glossy Rustoleum spray paint. Bam. Modern chic in just one afternoon. (Now can my whole house please be transformed that quickly?)
But it gets better. I didn’t want my little owl to be lonely, so I bought him a friend.
And don’t you think my little bird just completes the set? So glad I found him.
So moral of the story is, never under-estimate the power of spray paint or the potential of an item on clearance!
