I love white. In fact, when asked what my favorite color is, I'm either going to answer with White or Grey, depending on the day.
I saw these white rabbits at Potterybarn.com. So when I was given an old owl statue by my mother-in-law, who knows I like owls, this idea immediately came to mind -- paint it white!
Here is the original owl statue.
Cute, ain't he?
I bought a bottle of white glossy acrylic paint and went to town!
Above is a photo after the first coat. As you can see, the green on the bottom of the statue is showing through like crazy. I lost count of exactly how many coats of paint I used, but I'd guess around 4.
I know what you're thinking...
You can't count to four without getting confused?
In my defense, I had to let it sit and dry inbetween coats, and even went to a movie before I did the last one.
I love it! Looks exactly like I hoped! In fact, I think I'm going to have to restrain myself from painting anything and everything white that I can get my hands on!
Believe me, I know that this is a bookshelf. And trust me, it does have books on it.. somewhere. One of my biggest problems is loving everything too much! I can't minimilize!
