From Shabby Blocks To Shabby Birdhouses...

Hey there girls...

I'm still on a roll with my crafty alterations.  In my last post, I shared pictures of some of the shabby altered blocks I made using up some of my scraps of scrapbook paper. 

Well, in addition to those shabby blocks, I also altered a small unfinished birdhouse that I had purchased from the dollar bins at Michael's. 

To start, the birdhouse received a few coats of white craft paint just like the blocks..


Then, using some of the same scrapbook papers that I used for the blocks, I turned that little birdhouse into this...




I even added some beaded trim around the edges just to add a bit more detail. 


Another fun and easy project.  I will definitely be altering a few more birdhouses in the near future.  I can already see a row of these cute shabby little birdhouses lined up on the window sill in my craft room adding a bit of pastel/shabby goodness to my crafting space.

I hope you are enjoying seeing all of my crafty creations and that I've inspired you in some way to dive into some artsy craftsy projects of your own.

Until next time...

I saw those at our Michaels, too but passed them up! I'm not allowing myself to buy any more "to paint someday" items! YOU did a great job, though! Just precious. ♥
