A few before and afters. . .

Here are a few little projects that I have been working on.

First, I totally stole this idea from the ever so talented Kimba. I just love this little bird so much that I have quite a collection of him in different colors.

This is what he looked like fresh from the dollar store.


Here he is with extreme makeover #1.


Extreme makeover #2. PERFECT for Halloween!

Extreme makeover #3.

Love the red and it will totally work with my Christmas decor.


Here is my flock all together!


Next, I got these super cute star hooks from Burke's for $1.25.

This is what they looked like when they came home with me.


A few coats of antique white and VOILA! Much, much better!


Spray paint can work wonders, I do believe it's my new addiction!

Couldn't you just start spraying everything in sight?! The little birdies are so sweet.

Those little birds are adorable! I think the red is a great idea for Christmas -- I wish I could find some like that.
