Week 3: Ugly Ugly Vs. Cool Ugly

Sometimes I can't believe my luck.
Last month I found these hideous owl figurines for $2 a pop. I won't say where, 'cause that's my little secret. They were too ugly, even for me, but I had to have them, because they're owls. I'm diggin' owls these days. I bought seven of them, as well as two cans of spray paint, and there ya have it... ...the transformation of Dollar Store-disaster to overpriced-hipster-Urban Outfitters-chic. It's amazing what a Knittah can do with can of Krylon.

I wish I had such vision. I'm the sucker that sees these for $20 each at Urban Outfitters and contemplates buying them.
Well done!

We did the same thing with god-awful figurines we bought at VV. And I love your stuff! Do you have an etsy shop?

Hey, thanks! I don't have an etsy shop yet, but hopefully it'll be up by the end of the month. Thanks for checking out G-Uknit!
