Upcycle of the Week {LINK PARTY}

I am going to try to feature an upcycling project every week...or maybe every two weeks (depending on how much time I have). This week I found two owl statues at Goodwill for $2 each.

I've always loved owls, since I did a report on them in the third grade so I wanted to have some in my home.

Its amazing what a little high gloss white spray paint can do!

Remember to spray in a well ventilated area...I always spray outside, even though we've been in the 100s this week.

I bought my spray paint at Walmart, I use Krylon High Gloss White. I also LOVE their spray paint for plastic, I redid my kids outside table and chairs from Ikea a couple months ago. They were looking faded and so I sprayed them brown and BAM like new again.
So total cost:
2 Owl Statues $4
1 can of spray paint $3.24
TOTAL: $7.24

Time Invested: I did this on commercial breaks for a show to let the paint dry between coats so about an hour total!

What are some of your favorite upcycling projects?? I'm hosting my FIRST link up party...SO...Link up below!

What a great transformation! My ex-step-mom probably owned those owls before donating them to your Goodwill store. I never understood the appeal... But spray paint them white, and I'm in love! Found you at tt&j.
