I bought these cute…. uhhh…. ugly owls through facebook and I knew they would turn out great. I showed them to Nathan and my friends and I think they might have barfed a little when they saw these little guys. OK maybe they didn’t barf but they did say “Ughhh those are really ugly!!”. I know that but wait till you see how cute they will be afterward.
Here they are again with this camera that I bought at goodwill for $2. That turned out awesome too.
Next I primed them all with Valspar.
Then came the color!!
This is what I used on the camera.
Look how cute they are! They have some weird texture in the paint. I cleaned all the dirt off of them before I painted them so there might have been a texture on them before I painted. Or maybe I didn’t shake the can enough. Either way they are still cute.
I made the Love and Create words too. Yes that does say Love and not lave or Joe. When I wrapped the yarn I kinda combined the o and the v and it looks like an “a”. It is on my list to redo.
And the camera AFTER…..
For now the camera lives on our buffet. I haven’t really decided if he will stay there or not.
Have you taken something ugly and old and made it beautiful? I’d love to see what you did.
