Adding New Life with Paint


Have you ever seen one of these beauties at your local resale shop and just could not stop yourself from putting it in your cart for rescue?

Oh no! Wallpaper too?

I do love birdhouses. When I see one that has been thoroughly abused by a paintbrush, I find it hard to pass it up. I mean, I could make it beautiful again!

Who is painting these things, after all – toddlers? Argh! I have an inherent need to make it right, if only with a paintbrush.

Here’s my version of the fisherman’s cottage after much sanding, paint, and time. Is it perfect? Nope! Is it 200% better? Absolutely! And more than nice enough to hang in my home!

Do we all feel better now?
