What a Hoot

For those of you who may be living under a rock, you might have missed how popular owls have become lately, in both party themes and home decor.  Super cute and fun, and I have been loving all of the different styles and looks that are out there.  Ideas abound.

Nice modern owls like these…

These fluffy guys just look plain happy, don’t they?

Super cute party cookies…

I want to bring one of these into the office and drink coffee out of it at a staff meeting…

So, how could I resist this little fellow I found (for $3) at Goodwill?

 A few coats of glossy white spray paint, and he’s looking sharp, don’t you think?

And if you don’t like his new look, I don’t think he gives a hoot. 😉

    Love the painted owl! I am going to spray a few of my roosters after seeing your owl and some pears on another blog!

    My friend just sent me this link to your blog. I am so glad she did, because I have that same exact owl that you spray painted glossy white!! 🙂 I bought mine a few months ago at Goodwill for $2.99 and primed it, then spray painted it Heirloom White. I love my owl and while I love the other cute modern owls decorations, I love the stature of this one. So funny that you would find the same one. They truly are beautiful now that they have been given a make-over.

    IT LOOKS AWESOME!!! I'm actually half way though spray painting two squirrels glossy white (I've done 3 coats but am still struggling to get into all the nooks and crannys — those dark squirrels have so much detail in their big tails! ha!). I'm posting about it later today! Totally the same thing. Yours looks totally perfect 🙂 Good job! How many coats?
