Front of Birdhouse


This little birdhouse was another thrifted item. I really didn't like the orange color of it and a few pieces were loose so I fixed it and I painted it...hated it.. painted it... still hated it... painted it again, inked it, sanded it, added the scrabble tiles and finally smiled at the finished project!
