    I am in love. That is all there is to say! These would be perfect for our backyard and we also have a metal table we want to paint. I just wasn’t sure how to go about it!

      Thanks, Shanna! I don’t usually either but at least now I know that if I do, I can make it look better :)

    Nice project. Today, I’ll try if I could look something old but interesting and deserves some make over. I’ve had few stuff in the stock room, I might be able to see one.
    Thanks for this simple idea.

    You did good. What a fun family project. I just love owls myself. The yellow is my favorite – my favorite color.

    I noticed these were outside. How long does the paint last outside?

      Hi Jo! I actually brought them inside and they are now on my mantel. With these, I sprayed a clear gloss enamel when I was finished. The enamel states that it’s good for interior or exterior so I would think it would keep them safe if I left them outside. Although, we don’t have a lot of “weather” here in San Diego :)

    This is a very cute project! I’ve never painted metal items before, but now I will be on the look-out for any great deals at the stores. I love being able to repurpose items and make them useful!

    If you did not show the before and after I would not have recognized them after painting. What a marvelous way to brighten them. BTW, I adore owls.
