Hoot Doesn’t love a thrift find?

When I get the chance and can go
( 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!

linking up with 36th Avenue here.


  1. That looks awesome! Too funny you were wearing the same colors as the owl!

  2. What!? That is absolutely AMAZING! I need to remember that anything can be painted when I am out looking for antiques. 🙂 Definitely KIDLESS! 😉

  3. That is a GREAT find! I love it painted white too!!

  4. Great find! I think you did an amazing job painting it too – looks awesome!

  5. Oh my gosh.. I so love owls!!! I would have jumped on that one too! 🙂 Great job giving it a make over!

  6. I like him lots! Great eye for potential

  7. A great find for you. I especially like the triple thick crystal clear glaze.

  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.

  11. so cute! I love how a little spray paint makes a world of difference!

    just started following, btw! 🙂

  12. Oh my God! My mom and dad have that same owl {pre white paint} sitting in our living room at home. Neat idea of painting it{although my mom strangely likes it as is lol}

  13. Perfect transformation!

  14. wow! 🙂 looks completely different and absolutely chic! 🙂 x

  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!~

  18. What a great find! One of my good friends is obsessed with these little white ceramic animals – I would like to do this for good! I love how spray paint can make so many things beautiful! 🙂
