Spring Birdies Part 2

My obsession with little birdies continues... if you missed part one, click here. The other little birdie I found at the Dollar Store was not a part of my color-scheme at all.


So again, I white-washed it.


And dry-brushed it with blue.

  9. Aren't those dollar store birds the best? I really like the addition of the blue over the white. Gives it more dimension.

    Thanks for linking up to the Mad Skills party!

    I just purchased a vintage wooden birdhouse and spray painted it white...but I have been thinking about what to put on the bottom of it? I loved your idea on the moss. I had purchased some from The Dollar Tree and have just been holding on to it for something just like this! Thanks :) (love your blog btw)

  35. I actually picked up a bird just like this one today at the dollar store. My plan was to whitewash him like yours, but the glass is glued in! Now what? :)
