thrift store find - an owl statue!

before & after

 I got this owl at Goodwill the other day. It was only a couple of dollars and I thought it had
lots of potential. It just needed to leave the brown behind.
I spray painted it white (Valspar white in gloss).

Look at this similar one
From West Elm ($99).
check it out here.
Cute white owl bookends!
Check them out at Barnes & Noble.


Owl nightlight from Mod Cloth.


I love this white owl figurine from Heliotrope.
It's only $15!You can't beat that.

I've added him to the other white birds on the mantle.
I didn't mean for their to be a theme going on ...
but I realized yesterday that I have so many white bird figurines.
I think I might just go with this idea :)
