More Owls!

I walked by this the other day at the thrift store and thought, "How ugly." It's thin brown plastic. It weighs about the same as a paper plate. The price was $3.99. I walked away.

As I was browsing the lamps, I couldn't get those owls out of my mind. I thought, "I bet with a coat of spray paint, they'd be cute."

I think I was right.

I pried off the orange eyeballs. I thought about keeping them, but then I replaced them with mirrored disks and they look a lot cuter in my 9 year old's room. Obviously I need to wipe the smudges off of Daddy owl's eyes. But not bad for $4.00.


  1. Wow! I would have definitely walked right past. So cute.

  2. I LOVE them! I found some similar owls at GW one day, and I passed them up. I changed my mind later in the day and went back to get them and they were gone! :-( I was SO disappointed.

  3. How fun! I just found your blog and I love it. By the way I had no idea those were smudges I thought they were rhinestones, that looked quite pretty! I can't wait to read what you create in the future!
