Painted Bird House

We find that it is fun to add our unique touches to home decor pieces. The process and the final results of these conversational pieces always excite us, and give a feeling of satisfaction. This summer we decided to add a couple of bird houses that we made to the garden, as we had a variety of different birds that come to the bird feeder

For the finch bird house, I wanted to paint morning glory flowers.

Since I chose to do larger flowers and leaves, it gave me an opportunity to add details and use DecoArt Galaxy Glitter paint to give some shine.

The chickadee bird house took a little longer to paint as there were three sides and lots of details and layers. Painting the Chickadee bird feeder was a lot of fun. I used a variety of different coloured DecoArt acrylic paint, which is easy to work with.

We used leftover knotted pine wood from other projects. Here is the link to the design that inspired us.

First, I did a sketch with a pencil.

Using different paint brushes gave the different textures, I mostly used small paint brushes and the fan brush for this painting.

Then added details after each layer dried. This paint dries quickly so there is no need to wait a long time.

We used a sealant after the paint dried so that it would protect the paint in different weather conditions such as rain. Watch this video to see all the three sides of this bird house.
