Painted and Embellished Bird House

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here today with a cute birdhouse I recently found.

I began by sanding the birdhouse with the Delta Sander.

Then I painted the interior with Folk Art Milk Paint in Absinthe and the exterior with Bristol Green.  Once dry I used the Delta Sander to resand the birdhouse.  Then I lightly dry painted the bird house with Folk Art Milk Paint in Petticoat.


Next I used the Proxxon Precision Rotary Tool to drill 2 holes in the roof.  No bird house is complete without birds flying around so I inserted wire through the holes and attached bird charms.

Finally I die cut strips of striped paper to fit around the bottom edge.

All set for some little friends to settle in for the winter.
Thanks for stopping by.
