I saw this picture on the ZGallerie website and immediately fell in love...
But not so much the $169.00 price tag...Reallly, Z Gallerie?..Really?...Anyways I found this one at Hobby Lobby for $4 with a 40% off coupon:
and now it looks like this:
It's amazing what a can of spray paint can do, isn't it?
More photo love:
Yes, it makes me happy, and I like that it's faux...no need for real dead animal heads on my bookcase/wall...I'm not 100% sure if this will be it's final place (I literally just took down the picture that was hanging there originally, and hung the skull on that same nail). I would love to hear your opinions though...
During that same Hobby Lobby spree I found this for $3.00 because of a 50% off sale:
It reminded me of this one that I have been lusting over for awhile at Anthropologie for $20.00:
Yeah, apparently I have a thing for elephants (evident here).
Of course it needed some help....Hmmm...what to do?...Oh, right what I always do. Spray paint to the rescue:
Yes, he will make a perfect perch for our keys and a light jacket, and he is a better scale for this space (he is a couple inches smaller than the Anthropologie one)...and quite possibly (when I buy some more) will be perfect for paint swatches in my office....
Now, I must go see what else I can spray paint...No worries, I was just joking about the dog...Maybe...
