My Green Fu Dog

On Saturday, I made a little trip to HomeGoods to spend a gift certificate that I received awhile back. The store was packed so I didn't get to look as much as I usually do. I did walk away with a few little goodies though, specifically this little Chinese fu dog statue.

He was hiding in the clearance section, and what a great price he was!

I thought that he would look perfect sitting on the bookshelf in my office, but I knew he'd need a coat of spray paint to stick out on my black bookshelf. Sticking with the grey/green/black color scheme that I chose for my office, I decided to paint my new little guy, green. I chose Krylon's Emerald Green.

{Ignore my messy garage...please?}

A few coats of paint, and we look brand new. For some odd reason the paint has little "cracks" in some areas, but I kind of think those spots look kind of like scales. I'm not sure why the paint did that, but I'm not too worried about it.

I sure am spray paint happy lately. x
