When finding things to decorate your home, it doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. You don’t need to have fancy power tools or 2 weeks of free time.
Today I am sharing with you an easy way to add your own personal touch to your home for only a few dollars…and a few minutes of your time! Remember all my treasures from my thrift store jackpot last week?
This was one of them….the ugly
duckling owl. To be honest, I think this guy is so ugly they should have paid me to take him off their hands.
But for $3.50 I knew I could bring this guy back to life.
Right away I pictured him in a glossy white finish.
The texture of the plaque provides a lot of detail and using a solid color brings this piece of art from outdated to contemporary, fresh, and new.
I love the shadows that the owl reflects at night. The gallery wall is still a work in progress, but I think it fits in beautifully.
Here is another view to show some of the detail in the wood.
Have I convinced you to go out and buy some spray paint yet??
I started painting my lamp today too….remember this one?
I went with Aqua…can’t wait to reveal it later this week!!
