Owl lamp makeover

I was not going to spend $10.00 on this lamp. I walked away from it several times but could not leave it there all alone and sad. My husband actually stepped in (probably because I looked pretty crazy hovering over this thing trying to decide if it was worth it, and freaking out anytime someone came near it ) he politely said "Listen you will be mad if you leave it here .. so just pick it up and pay for it already!!" So I did.. who am I to argue with the man!!
Here she is before-sad little orange eyes begging me to make her pretty ...

A can of grey spray paint later and here she is..

I snagged a lamp shade at Lowes for $5.00 . I am going to look for some white and yellow damask fabric to recover the lamp shade.

What do you think? Was it worth the $10.00? I have to admit I kinda love it !!
