So one of my favorite things to do is repaint ugly things I find at antique stores, thrift shops, and garage sales. Whether it be furniture, picture frames, planters, or whatever else you can think of; spray paint is always my best friend! I have found myself utterly addicted to birds, owls, and frogs lately. I just can't get enough of them! I just had to post two things I have bought recently for less than $1 each. I was telling my Mom and Adam's Grandmother how I have been wanting one of those frog scrub holders from a zillion years ago and then about 2 days later I found one at a garage sale. He had awful painted on eyes, but I took care of it! Then I found these great owl bookends and painted them too! I think they are so stinkin' cute!


  1. Thank you for entering the contest on my blog!

    Both the frog scrubber holder and owl book ends are so cute, great job!

  2. Those look great. I like to do stuff like that too. I am currently working on a chair, but I have to hand sand the rest of it so I haven't touched it in like 3 weeks.

    Oh and you should see the dinosaur costumes I sewed Graham and I for Halloween. They were awesome.

  3. Haha! Those are awesome! Who knew that ceramics class we did in Girl Scouts would have paid off for someone. ;)

  4. I love your owl bookends. I would definitely buy them if I saw them somewhere-fantastic job.

    What kind of spraypaint did you use?


Thanks for visiting!
