Soooo, when I spotted some while out on a thrifting excursion I had to snatch them up....as nasty and grossed out as I was. They were filthy and I'm pretty sure a family of something gross once lived in the poor thing. I made my husband remove something furry, that he called "dust" but I think was something far grosser. It makes me cringe just imagining what it may have been!
I don't have a before picture but here is the after. All cleaned up and hanging in our master. I was considering hanging them downstairs but thought I might frighten visitors so I opted for a room less traveled by friends and family.
I spray painted them glossy white and taped off the ends. I used my favorite rub 'n buff to give it some girly flare.
I am not a hunter and think its rather disgusting and sad and I certainly am not encouraging you to go hunt down your own set (a disclaimer in case the gaming authority is reading)...but aren't they kind of cute?!
So what do you all think? Are you horrified and disgusted, never to return to the blog again or can you forgive me and embrace my antler loving ways?!?
Okay.....so.... a view readers have mentioned that I may have hung them upside down...to which I felt like a complete idiot and looked at my husband and was like...are they upside down!?!?! And he replied, yeah, I think so. To which I said, well why didn't you say anything when I hung them up that way!!!!! Would have been nice to know before I posted it for the world to see!!!! Anyway, so I tried flipping them around and it looks a little weird that way too. I think they would look right if I had the skull part horizontal (if that makes sense), but I cant hang them on a wall like that so either way they are going to look funny. I'll take pics the other way tomorrow and we can take a vote what looks better. Click HERE to see those!
Linking up with these lovely ladies!
