I stumbled upon a pair of these poor turkeys who’d been left behind when all the other Thanksgiving stuff went home with people. They were sitting there, kinda pitiful looking. Just staring at me.
The were covered in some sort of foil but these poor birds were molting. I mean this stuff was coming off:
I picked them up. I put them down. They kept staring at me. I walked away. I came back. OMG, they brought friends! Now there were two pairs of them. I figured I better just get them for a whopping $1.19 each before they multiplied. Again.
Once I got them home I started picking off the foil but that got tedious fast. So I figured what the heck. I’ll just paint over them. I gave them a coat of a satin finish acrylic paint, let that dry, then went over with a similar color glitter paint. They were better after the first coat, but here they are after two coats of glitter paint. What do you think?
I’m thinking they’re much happier with their new look. And I’m happy with my $5 investment! They’re either going on my dining table or mantle. Haven’t decided yet.
