I had seen these Dollar Tree birds on several blogs and ventured down to my local Dollar Tree in hopes of finding some as well. Woot! I did!
On all the blogs I had read thus far, everyone had been painting these birds white. And while that looked cute, I wanted something a little different...RED birds! :D This new obsession with the color red is my way of trying to add some color to our neutral/natural tone downstairs...
I loooved the way they turned out!! I may even glaze them with some dark glaze...
Side note: I primed them with a dark gray spray paint before painting them, as this helps the red paint stay true to it's real color.
Next up- this
Booooring....time for a makeover!
So I primed it with a dark gray glaze, then sprayed it with the Banner Red Krylon spray paint (have I mentioned I LOOOVE spray paint?!) and finally, using the glaze technique on All Things Thrifty blog I added some of my dark glaze and....TA DA!!
I just love the way the details stand out now!
