Decor DIY: Olly the Spray Painted Owl

I made a trip to the dollar store this morning and walked out with a new friend. Meet Olly. Olly didn’t always look like this. He’s is different, special and with the help of two coats of Krylon’s metallic gold spray paint he now shines as the centerpiece of my table top. Go Olly go!!!!

    • Thanks! Yes most things at the $1 are pretty hideous, but with a little love you can add some gems to your decor.

    I just love to spray paint things shiny silver. When You have a can of krylon spray paint the color of an item you buy doesn’t matter. You can always change it!
