White Owl (No Not Cigars)

So whooooo (sorry, just had to type it that way) among you remembers this somewhat tacky owl plaque that was thrust upon me at a garage sale earlier this year? See a post about it here. I had it on Etsy for awhile, but there wasn't much interest there. A little too kitschy perhaps? Anyway, since painting my living room and dining room and adding more white, I had an idea.

Yep, follow this trend of painting old pieces all one color. I must say I'm not a proponent of that. After all, you're altering some crafter's work, etc., but in some cases, like this one, I think it might just be for the better. What do you think?

Here it is in its new home high atop my living room doorway. I thought an owl might like it up there.
Thanks for looking!


  1. He even looks happier all white! lol...

  2. In this case, I think it's safe to say: the alteration is an improvement!
    I like him. I also like the quirky/ novel idea of putting him up high on the wall!

  3. It looks neat there my friend. I have an angel over my door in my bedroom. Hugs!

  4. Looks perfect and way better!!
