Rooster Rehab

All of you spray painters have been very inspirational to me, so now I look at things to see if they have any potential with a little spray paint.
This little fellow was just crying out for some new feathers!
The pink, baby blue and white just didn't seem to suit him.

This was the beginning of his transformation.

A little primer, and he was looking better.

Now, I think he has something to crow about. What do you think?

Wow, I love the rooster! I have a hen and a rooster set my mother got with green stamps and this maybe a good way to spruce them up for my kitchen!

Joy said...

I think that rooster is great now that he's had a makeover!
BTW, does admitting that I'm a tweaker count as my about me tag?

Kim said...

Ok...I can't tell you how many things like that I have discarded. Now I wish I had them. I don't know why I would have never thought to paint a piece like that. You did a beautiful job. Love it!

Janette said...

I like it! I am thinking that I have a few things that could use a makeover as well.
From one empty nest to another- enjoy school!
