i’m showing you the after, before. a ten minute project that cost about $2. love it.

i found these little birdies at a local thrift shop. $1 each. they had potential. i could just see it. they wanted me to bring them home and make them fresh and new.

i just brushed on a good coat of turquoise, water-based paint from michaels. such an easy update. and such a happy addition to the corner shelf. i’d like to place them on the coffee table but they wouldn’t last 5 minutes with david around. they’re much safer up on a shelf.

they would also be so sweet in white or cream. knick knacks–love ’em or leave ’em?
