Bird is the Word

Bird is the Word

Birds! Will they ever go out of style? I don’t think so. Birds have been used as part of decor in every age of time, from caveman hieroglyphics to carvings in the Egyptian pyramids to tapestries in Buckingham Palace to oven mitts in my grandma’s kitchen. I think it’s safe to say that birds are here to stay. And hooray for that. Where would we be today if those cavemen had decided to decorate with, like, ferrets or something?

Here are a couple of birdy redos for your viewing pleasure!

First from Suesan at FrouFruGal who redid this vanity, and replaced those droopy flowers in the center panel for a hand-painted, embossed design by using drywall spackle and glazing over it! Genius!


And here is a great side table that Nicole found for $3.99 at Goodwill and gussied up with aqua paint and one sweet little birdie. Check it out on her blog Noshings.

And check out today’s great deal from Better After’s wonderful sponsor,!
For only $7.50, this lovely “Simplify” sign is yours, and that INCLUDES shipping!
Details HERE.
PS: My new years resolution is to make my pantry as sexy as that, hot dang.

    Love that pantry paper — who would have thought? Love the 3.99 table, too, what a great makeover. Makes me want to stop by Goodwill tomorrow.

    Thanks for the feature on my dresser! I love the little table, too. Birds are definitely a part of my decor for now.

    Have a happy day!

    I love the little typewriter table turned hand painted side table. The bird and branch are perfect.
