I have a quick project today, my vintage golden owl planter. I found this lovely owl planter at my local Habitat Restore for about .50 cents. He sat on my shelf just like this forever while I was trying to decide if I wanted to paint him or not. Finally I just decided to go ahead and spray paint him gold. I found some nice gold spray paint at Hobby Lobby and went to town.
After the gold paint went on, I wanted some of the details to pop out a bit, so I rubbed some antiquing glaze all over and then wiped off the excess. After adding a small ivy plant I think he looks glorious. Now to keep that plant alive!
