Birdhouses

Don’t you just love a sale.  I found these cute little birdhouses for $1 each unfinished.  They’re very easy to adapt to your style.  The patterns on the roofs are handpainted, except for the middle one which is a Martha Stewart stencil.  If you don’t feel comfortable painting, you could Mod Podge the roofs with scrapbook paper.  Don’t forget to seal and prime them before painting.  These are too small to hang in our front tree.  If you’re planning to place your houses outside you will need to seal them as a final coat to protect the paint.  I have to figure out which room I’ll put them in…

Now I’d like to hear from you.  What color combinations would you use for your home?  Would you free hand paint the roofs and if so what would you paint?  What kind of scapbook paper would you use to Mod Podge them?

  1. I would love the polka dot ones just as they are! I have a lot of pinks and greens in my home anyway. I would freehand paint the roofs – probably tiny Mediterranean style tiles or cute bird footprints. LOL Thank you for the photos. God bless x
