When I stood at my kitchen sink, it was these owls that I would see outside. I really didn't like them. In fact, I almost ripped them down and threw them out on several occasions.
A couple of weeks ago, my sister told me she's obsessed with owls lately. And she admitted to wanting to abscond with these little rusty critters during one of her visits.
My husband had to take them down to repaint the shed. Also, it was my darling sister's birthday coming up........YES! The perfect opportunity to do something with them and pass them on to her.
I spray painted them with a Rustoleum paint called "Hammered". It was supposed to look like hammered metal. I'm not really seeing it, but I think they look nice anyway.
Now they can be perched somewhere in her yard for her to admire always!
