Big Lots Damaged Statue Score!

Well, I  missed the big sale on Garden Statuary at Big Lots – it ended on Saturday, and I just wasn’t able to get over there.  This morning, Jayson and I were out running errands on his day off, and decided to stop in, there was an angel from there that I have seen in several forum threads, and I just wanted to SEE her.  She is originally priced at $35 bucks, but with the sale, people were getting her for $23….  I did not intend to pay full price for her, but heck, what can you loose just walking around Big Lots?

I did find the angel – there was only one of her left, and much to my happy surprise, she was damaged… pretty good, actually.

This was the only area of damage, the rest of her was perfect.

So after walking around the store, and finding some pretty good landscape fabric at $5 for a 50’ roll (good for the boarded window effect, and just about anything you want to “black out”) I asked the manager if there could be a discount for the angel, since she was damaged.  He let us have her for $17 bucks, and I was happy as a clam!

Now, what to do with her?  My thought was to put some monster mud around the area to strengthen it, and stop the cracking, or loosing any more pieces, but leaving the existing cracks and 2 holes… then paint to age it, and let it appear as an old broken statue.  I think Jayson might be thinking on how to fill in the holes….

What do you think we should do with her?

Hope you are all having a great Monday!  Talk to you soon :)
