The Brass Elephant

(look at him in the WILD)
3 years ago I was in Japan, digging through one of their amazing thrift stores with a best friend. Waiting for me covered in dirt was this precious elephant. Though I found it so cute, everyone else seemed to hate it *cough my husband. So for the past 3 years he has been hanging out in whatever spare space we have had during our many moves. His favorite place seems to be the guest bathroom.
(Perfect model)
Today I decided he needed to come out of hiding and get a makeover.

With a can of rustoleum hammered bronze leftover from my NOEL project, I became this little elephants stylist.

Now he looks like a REAL elephant. With a modern updated look!
My husband came home and saw my little elephant and asked what happened. I said “You hated it, so I gave him a makeover!”, he replies “Yeah, but that was so you.” I was actually surprised to hear him say that, cause its true, the d├ęcor on the elephant was my look, I’m surprised he noticed.
So now little Elephant has a great view in my kitchen….
Maybe during one of my thrifting outings I can find a baby elephant to pair him up with. What do you think?

Oh Dean, I though it was great the way before as well. But he was getting no love that way :)

I have to admit that I like the after better, looks much more modern now.
