Project for February and sneak peak for March

One day, I was out 'junkin' and I came across this brown owl. I've never really been a fan of owls....not sure why. However, owls are really popular right now. Kind-of trendy. I even bought a few snow owls for my Christmas tree this past Christmas. Anyway, I decided to take him home and give him a make-over. This is the BEFORE...

This is after I gave him a coat of white paint. I didn't know that I would have to bake him in the oven to 'set' the paint until after I painted him. This is after he came out of the oven. He looks so much better!


And AFTER.....What do you think? Now he is 'shabby chic'. A cheap make-over. He cost $3.00 and the paint was $2.00. I posted him on facebook and my daughter claimed him. lol Smile on my daughter's face....priceless.

This is my project for March. My new king-size headboard. I am so excited to get this one done. I started it a few days ago. It's gonna be so pretty!

I'm joining Becky with 'Beyond The Picket Fence' for her 'Under $100 Linky Party'. Please stop by her blog to see the other great links.
