I’ve been having fun pinning and dreaming up decorative projects for Reese’s nursery. When I saw this idea on Baby Lifestyles of hanging birdhouses on the wall, I knew it would be perfect.
So I picked up five birdhouses at Joanne’s for $1 each and some colors that would work with my palate.
(I carry these paint chips, taped to a piece of paper, everywhere I go.)
Last week my friend Mary and I had fun painting up the houses, and then I Mod Podged scrapbook paper in complimenting colors to the roofs.
My final step was using Mod Podge’s Pearlized Sealer on them. It’s a spray on finish, and it gives everything a pearlized affect. You can see it fairly well on the red house. I really liked how subtle the finish is, and that it softened the bright colors a bit. I still need to do a second coat, but I live in Oregon where summer doesn’t really arrive until the 4th of July, so it’s still raining here. I’m planning on hanging these above her dresser/changing table and mounting a wooden frame around them to anchor the look. Then, if I have the time, I’d love to also make some birds like I linked to HERE, and have them hang from the ceiling in front of the houses. Now to just clean out her room…
Thanks for stopping by!
