Better After: the small things
- Original: brown ceramic owl figurines (a set), free. Upcycled: spray painted a glossy white. I'm using these cute little owls for my autumn decor as well as for my Christmas decor.
- Original: set of two gold oval ornate frames with the same framed bird picture; I paid $4 for the pair. Upcycled: spray painted satin black and new steampunk pictures added. The pictures can be changed for the seasons, or a change of mind in decor aesthetic. It's too bad that one of the bird pictures was badly sun-bleached because they were kind of charming.
- Original: two super shiny and super tacky early 90's candle sconces with matching gold ornate shelf (from Home Interiors I'm sure), free. Upcycled: spray painted flat/satin black to mimic cast iron. Now they match everything I own perfectly!
