The pink sheep: Turning a lawn ornament into bright home decor #Decor & Decorating#Do It Yourself#pink#spray paint April 23 2013 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin I know Caissie St.Onge as a comedy writer and a kick-ass young adult fiction author. But she's clearly also an awesome home accessory modifier. Caissie turned this sheep from lawn ornament to living room accessory then posted this pic on Instagram. Obviously, I had no choice but to bug her for more info… It was a realistic-ish hollow fiberglass yard decoration my husband got me because we couldn't afford these ancient stone sheep statues I once admired (they were really handsome, but like, $7,000). I liked the sheep how it was, but we kept it in our kitchen and the size and color kept making me think I was seeing our dear old dog, Frito Pie, who recently did that thing where he died. I wanted to walk into the kitchen pang-free, so I just primed it and painted it a color I shan't mistake for anything but what it now is — a pink sheep! Pretty sure my dog's soul lives inside it, though. Step one: Find an awesome lawn decoration, like Mr Sheep here. Step two: Prime said sheep. Step three: Choose an awesome color and spray away. Caissie almost went with yellow. But I'm digging the pink! Step four: Find the perfect place for your newest home accessory. Caissie's final piece of advice: "If you want to paint something into a kooky statement piece, I recommend any cheap spray primer (I used grey Krylon) and Montana Gold brand spray paint."

Show/Hide comments [ 9 ] This is pretty darn fantastic. Does the sheep have a name? I'm that weird person who would give it a name and then greet it every time I come home from work. Also, LOVE that chair. 18 agree Reply I wouldn't expect to like this, but I really like this. 3 agree Reply I love it! the pink is perfect. God I love spray paint!
