DIY // Transform Ugly Thrifted Ceramic Owls

Hey there, Vamps!

Have you all noticed the trend of white ceramic owls?  I know what you're thinking, "Oh, God, NOT ANOTHER ceramic owl!  Seriously, everyone and their mom has one, but not me.  I have two!

West Elm Ceramic Owls

 Here's how I took two thrift store ceramic owls from trash to treasure.  (Break out that spray paint and start spraying.  It took me 3 coats.)

So, what about you?  Do you still fancy the white ceramic owl or are you sick and tired of the trend?



  1. I personally love the trend. I definitely would not mind if you gave me one of them. Haha. Another great job, sister!

  2. Heck no! I am definately still in love with the owls!! I have them in white, blue, and green ALL over my house!! Yours just look so sweet and happy! :)

  3. As if! I love the trend! Let's keep it going.

  4. I cant' get enough of owls lately, have a bunch in my shop. I love what you have done to modernize them. I host a weekly fri-monday linky, Anything goes, I would love for you to share your owls and more.
    I am also hosting a Valentine contest with some fun prizes. Hope to see you soon.

  5. I like yours better than to west Elm ones. Yours have more personality ( and cost way less , too!)
