DIY: Polka Dot Owl


A few weeks ago my dad found this owl bank at a yard sale. I loved the owl but wasn't too fond of the colors so I decided to paint it.


I liked the look of the plain yellow owl but thought it needed a little something extra so I made a circle stencil and added some dark yellow polka dots.


Perfect! The only problem is... now I'm kind of in a polka dot frenzy. The side table in my bedroom is looking a little bare. I have a feeling that it's next.

  3. That looks really good! Before you painted it, it reminded me of candy corn.
