An Elephant & Pagoda

I've been meaning to share these two little finds with you guys for awhile now, but I guess life got in the way! : )

While perusing Garden Ridge the other day I came across this little outdoor pagoda and scooped that baby up licketysplit! I loved its shape but not so much its peachy-gray coloring. That same weekend I came across this little elephant at Cato, a clothing store of all places!


The dark brown coloring did not highlight this little guy's fun detailing so I took my can of spray paint and made over both the pagoda and little elephant.


Currently the pagoda is hanging out on our entryway table. You may {or may not : )} notice another little switcheroo on this table, too!


That brass sculpture on the right is really a vintage toilet paper holder but I preferred it here in its new spot just looking pretty.


Mr. Elephant is currently living it up on my nightstand in our bedroom. He's happy there for now. : )


Buy any fun finds lately? Point me in the right direction and I'm there!

I always say that a can of spray paint can make anything fresh. Looks good. Have a wonderful weekend.

Very cute! I swear my apartment is starting to be taken over by animals. Animal figurines, animal lamps, animal art... oh and my pug :)
