. . . Paint It Yourself Birdhouses . . .

I was at Michael's a couple weeks ago and saw these adorable unfinished birdhouses.  I love to paint but prefer to stick to painting walls versus something I've made but I figured this would be a cute project for my son and I to do so why not get a couple.  They were $1.99 each and I snatched three of them up.  Pulled out the acrylic paint and set to work.  I don't have very many photos because it was hard to paint and snap pics but basically they start out completely unfinished and then you paint them to your liking and add extra embellishments as you see fit.  I have seen these on several other blogs and it's amazing how different than can look.  Check out Simply Designing to see how hers turned out--I love them with the antiqued look to them! You can also see how cute My Garden of Eden did hers--love!
