Red Rooster Up-Cycle

I finally did it and I LOVE it. I spray painted my dull brown rooster. He is amazing now and It literally took a few minutes!!!

Here is the before:

Here he is. He is okay. He just never really fit in. He was $4 at a garage sale and I remember thinking that was so expensive.

Here he is with two coats of red Krylon and a top coat of clear glaze.

And, NO, he is not wet....just deliciously shiny!!!!

Can't wait to find the perfect home for him. Maybe right in the middle of my white pitcher collection? What do you think?

I can't help it now. I am eyeing everything in my house and spray painting it in my mind.


  1. My daughter Lucie just woke up and saw my rooster. She said, "Did you paint that? I liked it better before."

  2. Your daughter is wrong- I love it red, it looks great!


Thanks for your feedback! It makes my day getting comments!
