Goose Makeover

I’ve had these pictures in my file for a while now and what better time to share than now.  I bought this goose at a sale for literal pocket change.  And yes people did look at me strange, very strangely,  but I don’t care.  I had a vision for this little guy.  I wanted to give him a new coat and set him on my porch for some great primitive decor.  Since this makover I’ve been hooked on finding more geese.  And I certainly didn’t have any trouble doing so.  Once I get my porch ready for this summer I’ll show you more pictures of geese that I’ve painted and made over, one is absolutely huge, just wait  til you see it.

Sorry about the before picture becoming a during picture.  I get all excited about starting a new project that I forget to take the befores sometimes.  Just look at that mauve and country blue fabric.  Now stop laughing, you know you decorated your home in these very colors.  And after seeing the after your gonna wish you still had some of those geese you got rid of when the trends so happily changed.    I actually didn’t decorate with geese (I’m too young) but I did the cow/amish thing.  lol.  Well it was cool at the time.

Poor little bird looks like he got stuck in an oil spill.

 

And here he is all cleaned up and wearing some berries.

 

Yard sale season is quickly approaching.  What items are you on the look out for?  Do you have any makeovers in mind?
