I have a little owl habit. Whew! I said it. So glad to get that off my chest. Now that you know I can show you.
So I keep picking up these little ceramic guys. I find them at garage sales, and thrift stores all the time. Usually they’re between $1 and $4 but I won’t pay $4 for them. Seriously? Why would a thrift store think he’s worth $4? Thrift store are getting a little price crazy but that’s another post (or rant either way).
Anyway, I keep buying them not because I think they’re cute like they are but they become cute with a quick spritz of Rustoleum 2x. See how adorable he is!
So I’ve done this trick before. Initially, I painted one white and a friend of mine wanted it, so I gave it to her. Then I painted one red and my mom wanted that one for her patio so I gave it to her.
The blue guy here turned out to be a favorite of someone else, so you guessed it – gone.
This time I painted the little guy black. So far no one has asked me for him but if they wanted him I would probably give him up too. Why not they keep coming back to me and I can make them any color I want.
So the next time so see an ugly owl or any other ceramic trinket that’s seen prettier days pick it up and give it a little love. Just not if it’s $4. Seriously, I can’t get over that. Really?
