I've always loved owls and they're so hot right now. I mentioned back here that I needed something more for my dresser area and when I saw this guy, I knew he had to be mine.
He wasn't quite tall enough for the space on his own so I gave him a little boost with this old wood block I had from something else. I kind of like how the block is rough and sort of rustic. It gives Mr. Owl a nice edge.
He looks rejuvenated and refreshed after a new coat of Heirloom White. (The same color I sprayed my dresser tray.)
I adhered him to the block with a thick coat of E-6000.
He looks great on my dresser. I'm still planning on replacing that print with a larger, canvas version. I just need to convince myself to spend the money on it. I know I can get a great deal through Canvas People, I just need to get it ordered.
What do you think? Was he a good addition to my dresser? For $1 (the cost of the bird - the wood block and paint were on hand) I think he's a good deal!
This weekend I'm going to be sewing and hanging my new curtains and going on the hunt for a new computer. I can't wait!
