My Stampavie Penny Johnson Vintage Bird house

Ok I have to admit this is one of those rare times where I am totally happy with the end result of a project. This Bird House just makes me smile. And I do believe I am going to have to make another one as soon as I can get another one at JoAnn's. This plain wood bird house was on sale, I don't think I even paid $5.00 for it. And take a look at it now.....
Again it just makes me smile :0)

There are three of the new Penny Johnson’s new Vintage collection stamps used. The Blossom Birds for the front and then for the back Chandelier and La Chaise – birds need great lighting and a chair to sit on too right?

The wood house is painted with plain cheap acrylic paint that I swear I have had for 100 years. Really shook it up well and it was ready to go. The corners and edges I rubbed just a bit of Distress Ink.

I then added a whole bunch of things from my misc. embellishments – Scalloped card stock for the roof, punched with EK Success Jumbo Scallop punch – Large Bling – Wooden Flourishes – Metal frames – Corners and Decorative Papers. This was so fun to make. Started out a really cheap plain wood bird house and then after a little paint and some fun I have one Styling Bird House!!


Here is the back -
Oh and the other side view -

Hubby asked what I was going to do with it. UH.... NOT HANG IT OUTSIDE....wouldn't last a week out there, this is a decorative bird house - just for shelf sitting and again making me smile.

Hope it made you smile too -
