For the Birds.....

I had this bird feeder
that the squirrels knocked
 out the plexiglass
the door was originally green
I hadn't planned on posting
until after I painted the door


The colors I used
are what we are going
 to paint the house with


I used Balsa wood
 for the side panels

Side by Side

I forgot to take a before photo
of this birdhouse
but was at Michaels and
took one with my phone

I added this emblem
spray painted Oregano
by Rusteolum

The base was sprayed with
Urban Beige

It needed more so
 I added this to the roof
Valspars Burnt Plum

and the base is
Benjamin Moore's
I added a fence
that I got at JoAnn's

a little Aleenes


The walls
are painted Benjamin Moore

the roof is Valspar
alternating with 
Benjamin Moore
Norwich Green

The roof looked flat so
I glazed the whole thing with

Last but not least
yeah I remembered to take the shot!

The roof is Norwood
the body is Champagne

All together:

Make it For Monday
Market It Yourself Mon
Just Something I Whipped Up
Its So Very creative
Get your Craft On Thursday Fun to Craft


  1. Very cute. I have bought a few of those in the past and I always paint them very very boring. Like white house and black roof. Yours are definitely better. I like the little fence around the 2nd one.

  2. Wow. Love how they all turned out. :) Would love to have you link this up to my {wow me} wednesday link party going on right now over on my blog.. if you haven‘t already. Hope to see you there. {New follower.} :)


  3. Cute. A good way to make them last longer outside, is to do a couple of coats of water-based EXTERIOR varnish.
