Bird house updated

I have had this little bird house thingy for some time just waiting for inspiration. Well I found it this weekend. I have been a painting fool. Here is what I started with.

Before





It's cute but needed a facelift.
Got out the chalk paint and started in.

Started by adding feet to the bottom. Bought these at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. Yay!!!

After


 Also added a perch. It was purchased at the same time I bought the legs. It also was already distressed so I didn't have to do anything but glue it on. Right on!!!
 Love here cute little legs. Thinking about painting those too!!
What would you do????
 Look at that shabbyness!!!! Love...
 Added a bird because, well, it needed a bird :0)

And why not add a note or two!! Hard to see with the method of transfer I used (which was the wax paper). But you still can see it. I think I got the bird from the Graphics Fairy and the music from Knick of Time.
So.. what do you think!!
Have a great day,

  1. I love what you did with the birdhouse, Cheryl! The knob perch is perfect! I also wanted to invite you to a link party I host. It's called Your Turn To Shine and opens every Thursday morning at 6am. No worries if you're not interested, I just think your cute, shabby projects would be a good fit and I'd love to see you there.
