Owl makeover!

I fell off the radar this last week since I am in Seattle visiting family and taking an art class.  However the intensive class is over (I had a TOTAL blast) and now I am playing the catch up game!  Right before I left for Seattle there was a great break in weather so I went spray paint crazy!

This owl set of Salt and Pepper shakers were already so cute but didn't really fit our apartment style so I gave them a green summer makeover.

Then since I was on a roll I busted out my yellow spray paint for a .50 cent Owl wall hanging I had.  

The owl was a little shabby and not in a good way as it was so I wanted a clean makeover that gave it a contemporary edge.  Solid stand out pieces work well in our apartment so once it finds a space on the wall this lovely will look so cute!

I have a few more projects that were left half done and a few that my husband started to tackle for me so I am excited to head home but I have a little longer in Seattle still.  It seriously feels wrong to be away from all my craft stuff.  I sit here at night not knowing what to do at all.  I have started drawing though which has been an interesting adventure that shows some promise.

What are you lovelies up to?

    Thank you for opening my eyes to the magic of spray paint! Those salt and pepper shakers are adorable! I honestly never thought about looking at the pretty shapes behind the ugly colors of some things I see and just spraypainting them a-new. Awesome!

    Popped over from Fingerprints on the Fridge. I have a slight owl obsession. Love what you did with these two. Much better now. :)
