While shopping with my Mother-in-law I came across this owl lamp for $3. She thought I was nuts for bringing this scary looking lamp home and Meg actually shrieked when I pulled it out and showed it to her! ;)
I started out by priming it with some gray primer. Before I finished this step Hubs
took it all apart for me (he's the smart one in the family).
Then I coated it with Heirloom White spray paint (which so many of you have recommended). I forgot to take a pic of the front before step 4 so here is the back of it.
After that I took the sandpaper to it and knocked off some white letting the original brown show through and voila here is my owl.
Eventually he may become a lamp again but for now he's sitting on top of my corner cabinet keeping an eye on things.
