While my house still looks like this....
I decided to do this...
While my boys did this....
Here's what I got!
Love how my ceramic piece turned out. I was so tired of that mustardy yellow that matched nothing.
As for the frame and topiary...they still need some work.
I used a really fancy technique. The bird had a lot of red in it, so I spray painted my finger and quickly ran it over the bird so I didn't get any finger prints. Fancy right? Maybe not the greatest paint job but I'm not counting on a close-up critique.
If GRAY is the new BROWN,
Then BIRDS are the new what?
...toll painted wood?
...raffia tied dry flowers?
I decided it was about time I invested in some birds. So I adopted some from my local Michael's crafts, all for only a couple bucks!
Here's this precious one who was in dire need of paint.
Honestly, I'm not too thrilled with the turnout, more bland than I was hoping. I could re-paint it turquoise or white...or leave it. What do you think?
I've got one more room to unpack and organize. The office/craft room.
Wish me luck.
Check out our linky parties, we'll probably be linking up this week!!
