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!
