I love finding hidden treasures at the thrift store. This little owl lantern was one of those. He looked all dark and lonely and in need of a makeover. So my thrift store makeover for this month was a DIY Painted Owl.
DIY Painted Owl
Here’s what I started with… see a little dark for what I was looking for.
I used some creamy, white acrylic paint and brushed it on lightly… I wanted some of the metal to be peaking out.
I added a little bit of metallic wax around the eyes to help them pop.
The results were a cute, creamy white owl for our mantel.
Now check out some other great thrift store finds from these great ladies…
