Bird House

Today I sat down to make something for fun.  I found these little wooden bird houses at Jo Ann's the other day for $1.00.  I picked one up and thought I'd give it a whirl.

Now if you are thinking the painting looks messy and distressed - well, yay!!  I accomplished what I set out to do!  First I painted the house will an antique white acrylic paint.  When it was dry, I used some Melody Ross Homespun Chic to cover it.  I covered the edges with Peeled Paint distress crackle paint, and when it was dry, I sanded it down to get the antique white to show through here and there.  Some assorted embellies was all I need to finish it off.  Just a fun craft project for Sunday afternoon!
