April Fools! part three

April Fools! part three
Welcome to our final installment of wacky April Fool’s projects. When most people tackle a makeover, it’s usually something like a chair, or an ugly old shelf, or some such. 
 Very few, and by very few I mean once, has anyone sent me a plastic deer head makeover. 
 This before deer honestly looks like something that you might find near the singing fish decor in Wal-Mart. But Lindsay was thinking less Wal-Mart, more Z Gallerie, where she had spotted a faux deer mount for $220. 
 So she got out the high gloss white and classed up that deer, and now he’s looking like this and light years away from this.

    haha! even I got a kick out of this, and it’s MINE! 🙂 well, first off his name is Oliver and i found him by googling “fake resin deer.” i ended up getting him from a seller on kaboodle, but there are also some floating around eBay under those same search words. we love him!

    Not often do I find a “before and after” so amusing! Love it!

    Ok, so I will admit I had this idea a while back and I’m happy to see I’m not the only one! Much better use of a target practice dummy, IMO! ox

    How clever. I love this white deer!! And you’re so right, the white resins you see everywhere cost a small fortune. Ok, I gotta try this. First, I need a deer. ha. Thanks for sharing. best, -susan

    This is awesome – I’d love to do it for our little place up in the mountains where “Rustic Chic” is the theme. Did she use a spray paint or a semi-gloss white painted on with a brush??

    i’m so glad y’all like the ole’ deer!

    i used gloss spray paint and then got in the little crevices (in the ears, nostrils) with a small brush.

    that sounded so weird. 🙂

    anyway, here’s my blog: http://dancingthrulife.blogspot.com
