Refurbishing Resale Finds: Blue French Horn

I am a big believer in taking an ordinary thing and tweaking it to make it extraordinary. This is a bookend shaped like a french horn that I found and painted blue to have a fun, subtle, "How I met Your Mother" reference in my living room. The bookend was metal so, it had to be primed and painted in several coats to allow the paint to stay but, the overall effect ended up being spectacular. Plus, whenever someone comes into my apartment and catches the reference, it makes my day :)
