There is NOTHING that doesn’t look better with a coat of white paint. O.K., truth be told I didn’t actually mind this $1.25 bird from Dollarama when it was in it’s original incarnation of brown … I just knew I’d like it more once I painted it white. After it was painted, I went back with a Sharpie and dotted in the pupils. Without eyes painted in, it looked … well … blind, I guess.
What you need:
Bird – $1.25 (Dollarama)
Spray Paint – $9 if you don’t already have some laying around (I used Krylon Fusion for Plastic … even though the bird is ceramic)
My goal is to paint 5 or 6 of these and use them along the dining room table for Easter. I also thought they’d be cute as place markers (albeit kindda large ones) Just sharpee the names right on the bird. I’ll report back with pictures prior to Easter. And just so you know … this bird looks way nicer in real life. I’m nooooo photographer. I’m a pretty good shot with a spray can though.
