I realize spring is almost over. Really and truly, I picked up this dollar store bird back in January even before the dollar store bird craze hit blog land! Last week, I finally decided I'd better get this happy little bird out for show and tell! (At least before it has to fly south for winter, right?!)
I wish I had taken pictures before painting. But... I didn't. I found this adorable candle stand at Hobby Lobby. I gave the bird and the candle stand a nice coat of heirloom white spray paint. I decided to try out the famous Ralph Lauren faux finish, too. I love the depth it added to the final paint job!! Gorgeous!
I added some green Spanish moss and gave the bird a little nest to sit on. It seemed rather plain -Jane until I added a little fabric. In case I haven't mentioned it before, I adore this fabric!! I used it here and here.
I love my little spring Bird! What a happy token of spring! (Which we are finally starting to feel here in Colorado!)
