So it's about time that you knew that i like birds.  Shocking, i know.  So when i came across this vintage owl print from the 1970's at a yard sale i was more than thrilled to snatch it up.  To make things better, it was only $1.  I really love the print, but i wasn't to crazy about the frame itself.  The print is glued into the frame so my only option for change is to change the color of the frame.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but the print has shades of navy blue, not black.

To save the owls from over spray, i used painters tape and newspaper to cover the print before spray painting.  I first chose a bright orange color to complement the navy shades. 

So this was supposed to be the cute bright orange.  It dried and looked like it was the original paint from 1970. :(  Without taking the newspaper off i knew it wasn't the right color. 

2nd Attempt:  Turquoise.  MUCH BETTER!
The perfect place to hang this was above a vintage metal dresser i have in my bedroom.  I like the combo of the old dresser, vintage colored glass bottles, my mom's jewelry box from the 70's and now my adorable owl family.

P.S. I want to give a shout out to Julia and her adorable blog for mentioning my chalk boarding skills!  You can check out her crafting ideas and her post about me HERE.  Birds of a feather flock together!  Thanks for the love!
