Hoot Doesn’t love a thrift find?

When I get the chance and can go
“KID-LESS” 
( the only way “HELLO” antiques) 
I love to visit my local towns thrift store(s) and spend as long as I can looking at everything and even things with potential. I have been wanting an OWL FOR SOMETIME either to have out all the time or for Halloween…… 
and…..EEK-I scored. The gal at the store had the perfect one in their basement hidden behind a picture and under a table…. HE IS HUGE like a foot and half and was $ 10.00 bucks… now HOOT doesn’t love a great find and a great price? 

He wasn’t very purdy to begin with…… BUT’ that is what spray paint is for. I used Krylon glossy white and Krylon triple thick crystal clear glaze. I think he is a behooty now.

 IT WAS MEANT TO BE … we were wearing the same colors… BAH’ i’m a HOOT!

THANKS FOR COMING BY.

  8. love kidless days, thrifting and finding sweet deals like your little owl! he looks fabulous!

  9. He is fabulous! I could only dream of finding a big owl around here!

  10. I didn’t realize how big the owl was until you were holding it. Lol It looks much better with a fresh coat of paint because those colors before weren’t that great.

    just started following, btw! 🙂

  13. Perfect transformation!

  15. He looks great in WHITE! 🙂 Very vintage in the before pic, but it’s also something my grandma would have in her home…and i think she does in gold and shiny other colors..lol~ But the white is very chic and classy! Love It!~
