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...


Each and every comment absolutely makes my day! Thanks for taking the time to share some love, stop by again soon!
