a mental sidetrack

last saturday we walked to a rummage sale at a church close to our house and i fell in love with this little owl lamp. on wednesday i really needed a distraction as i was waiting to take beatrix to the speech pathologist on thursday. i didn't like the colors of the owls though. one of the blogs that i read every day is always repurposing things like this so i thought i would give it a try too. i bought some white spray paint and with their advice of light even coats, i got to work.
first coat.
i did five more after this one.
i love how they turned out and they look amazing on my dresser. i will definitely do this again.
it works beautifully as a night light in our room for middle of the night feedings.
