19¢ Fish

I found this fish at the local Goodwill.
Price 19¢.

I knew I could do something with him.
He is about 18' inches long and heavy.
He was sad- and black.(why do I keep calling him, "him"?)

Got out the white spray paint(already had) and "went to town".
Not literally to town; its just a saying I got from my grandma.
"went to town" def:; To proceed enthusiastically, vigorously, or expertly..

Two coats later, a little sanding around the edges and here he is-

Another shot, with a picture of my girls when they were young.
Aah, the good 'ol days. :)

This is just a little extra idea to share.
I took a picture of the pumpkin and gourds outside on the bench.
Downloaded them a few weeks ago and did some editing. Rite Aid was running a special to get 50 prints free; so I took advantage of it and copied a few pictures from around the yard.
The frame is from Dollar Tree.

Total cost $1.00!!
Unique and personalized artwork at a great price!!! :)


  1. Amen for white spray paint! He looks great!

  4. Great idea!!! Love how you displayed him...lol

  5. The sign you ask about on my blog is $125. It is actually painted on both sides, and it's metal. It is such a cool sign! Let me know if you'd like to get it!

  6. Wow! Now you have me looking at things with renewed eyes. How creative indeed. I love your fishy :)
