My daughter's room has a bird theme. I made a quilt to mimic one from pottery barn kids, that I'll show you another time, and I painted 3 little canvases for wall, all with a bird theme. I've been wanting to find fat little birds for a long time to accessorize but haven't had any luck. Yesterday at dollar tree, what did I happen to see but fat little birds! Yes they are ugly but not so bad that my favorite spray paint won't help!
My spray painting technique is that I plant myself in the grass and just turn the cardboard they are on so I'm down low enough to get every side,.
After one full rotation.
I think I ended up giving them about 3-4 coats of spray paint to get the look I wanted.
It was a little tricky getting into all the little nooks and crannies, but I love how they turned out.
The best part is that they look like porcelain!
(I'm also planning a baby shower in a few months and these will be PERFECT!!!)
