I found an old wooden bird house in the basement a few days ago. Just a plain craft one from the Michael’s store that had been sitting on my craft shelf forever. I decided to dress it up a bit and use it on my porch. In case you haven’t noticed by now, my husband and I prefer Asian and tropical style decor. So I thought maybe a tropical looking birdhouse would go nicely.
First I primed it. It had a few splotches of red on it from one of my kids. He was going to paint it, but then lost interest.
Then some chocolate brown spray paint.
Next I thatched the roof with some bamboo pieces that I saved after having the blinds in my kitchen cut down to size. Then I wrapped it in twine. Sorry I didn’t get any photos of this…It was too hard to glue and snap pictures at the same time, especially with my sticky fingers. )
I painted the posts red and added a couple of yellow flowers for color.
A little taste of the tropics. )
Thanks for visiting!
