Whimsical Birdhouses


These cute bird houses started out as plain wood. I bought them at Hobby Lobby on sale and decided that I wanted to paint on them. I had seen on a show where a lady used birdhouses throughout her garden. I painted them bright colors so that they would be a good contrast up against foliage. I used my one stroke techniques to paint the flowers and leaves. Now I have to come up with some type of stand for them to go out in my garden. Check back soon for an update on these cute little birdhouses.

that's a coincidence! my daughter and I just painted 2 bird houses (and they do look like they were painted by a 2 yr old!) Yours are beautiful! You could always drill a small hole in the tops and run a little rope through (or maybe use a staple gun), then hang them on small shepherd hooks. Thanks for coming by my blog!! Hope to see you again next week!!

Your bird house are beautiful, I love birdhouse and have a couple myself.
As to your question on the chair, the seat was a regular seat, particular board, batting, stuffing, covered in layers and layers of fabric and plastic (when it was used as outdoor furniture).
