I hit my first Garage Sale of the season on Saturday. It’s very hard to resist a Garage Sale when it’s in walking distance from your house!
$2.00 later, I walked home with a box lid full of some great finds and 9 free mason jars. Yippee!
This little owl was priced at 75 cents and I knew it had potential.
I grew up with an owl lover so I have a soft spot for owls. My Mom actually has a cookie jar that could be this owl’s enormous cousin!
The eyes were a bit creepy, but it turns out they were just attached with hot glue.
I removed the eyes, primed the owl and they sprayed it with multiple coats of Heirloom White.
Have you met Heirloom White? She’s a lovely colour!
(Shhh . . . Don’t tell Laura that her parents sold the owl she gave them 24 years ago!)
At one point I had to hang the owl’s head on a dowel to get paint in all the feather crevices. Good thing I had already explained what I was doing to my curious neighbour!
After the owl was dry(ish), I used scrapbooking brads from my stash for the eyes. I will glue them in properly once the paint has fully cured.
Once again, Heirloom White transformed something from drab to fab!
Do they call them Garage Sales where you live or is that another Canadian thing?
Have a great week!
P.S. Check out another Heirloom White makeover here.
Linking up here as well as to these great parties!
Thank you to all the hosts!
