I found an ugly little ceramic owl at the thrift store this weekend that I thought had the potential to be kinda cool with some paint. Before I got any further, I had this post all ready to go and then looked at one of my favorite blogs this morning to find out that they posted the same exact project except with a frog! I thought that was kinda funny. I promise I didn't rip this off of them, I guess we were just on the same wavelength.
Here is the lovely little owl that I purchased at Savers (my new favorite thrift store!) for $3.99:

It now looks like this!
