Dollar Store Owl Makeover



In celebration of our one year blogiversary, we are re-sharing a few of our first projects with you this week. This was the first blog post I published a year ago.

I purchased this little ceramic owl friend at one of my favorite stores, The Dollar Tree. I found him to be quite cute, but a tad brighter than my typical gray, black, and white décor. To help him blend into my neutral colored home, I decided a makeover was just what he needed and turn him owl-white.

I applied two coats of Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Ultra cover semi-gloss white spray paint to the owlet and let him dry. Look he’s owl-done!


Isn’t he a hoot? Whoo wouldn’t want one of these? I think he turned out owl-dorable! (Sorry, I could resisted all of the over the top owl puns. Hehe!)

    He is so much cuter after the makeover, I love it! Congrats on your first year of blogging! And thanks for linking up to Link It or Lump It. :)

    What a great idea! He’s so much cuter white. I’ve not seen that paint before, but it looks wonderful. Will have to get some and find some things that need a coat of it. You’ve inspired me!
