# Decor # Paint

FAUX IS THE WAY TO GO...

Well apparently I am waaaaay behind on the whole faux animal head thing.  I'm not interested in a taxidermy animal head (i don't know if that makes any sense), I am quite pleased with the ceramic deer head I purchased off of Amazon.



So here you are...my version of trophy head wall decor using a small paint brush and crafters paint.

(warning the following pictures may be unsuitable for children ;)










****TAH DAH****






So now that I've jumped on the wagon, I need to add one more on each side don't ya think?  Below is what will be on the list...and just in case you're thinkin' it...no I haven't fallen off my rocker.  HAHAHA



 



GOOOOOO PETA!

  9. You've done this so well. I can't believe you thought of painting it. I never would have done...but it really works, doesn't it?
