Oh Deer.

All season I've been seeing on holiday decoration blogs are white deer or spray painted deer like these at Young House Love. I figured I might as well jump on the bandwagon, so I set out on a search for some deer. 
Michaels Crafts?  $10.
Etsy? $15 + shipping
Pottery Barn? Don't even ask.

I thought all hope was lost...until I stumbled across these little guys. Yes, they are a velvet-y fabric and hideous. Have some faith, would you? Each were just 25 cents at the thrift store down the street, and I knew with a little paint I could make them lovely...

After coat 1:

2 more coats and my deer were bright white and lovely:

Perched on top of a Christmas gift for Michael...
Part of the ledge display..

There you have it: cheap, easy, and lovely winter decorations! Actually, I like them so much..they may just become staples in the apartment...
