Three Thrifty Projects

Three birdhouses I have picked up over the last few months ….I only got to two of them done….

Before:

211This first one , I tore out the pink flowers and old moss..I added some ivy and some new green with flowers.

me and bonnies arms 016

me and bonnies arms 008 This one – I tore out all the dusty ugly moss and painted it black, added it to a candle stand and some ivy…for now .

Two urns -

003 Stuff with old batting or Styrofoam ball and add fresh green moss.

006 Don’t forget to paint the urns first…I used WHITE (SHOCK) !

085

Each urn and birdhouse was under three bucks each from the thrift store and cost under a buck each to transform.

Please join Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ to join up with others !

The birdhouses are stunning. I love the tall one with the twigs at the top and the ivy. It looks fabulous. Painting the other one black and setting it on a pedestal is such a creative and lovely idea. The urns are absolutely fabulous. Love, love, love them. Great idea. Hugs, Marty

Isn't it nice to tear out the dusty moss and start fresh.

Kammy-Great bird houses! I have several of those urns lying around from our daughter's wedding and would never have thought to paint them white, but yours look great--so "springy"! I bet you will get LOTS painted during turkey season :)

Hi Kammy...

Girl, it looks like you've been busy bringing a little Spring to your place! I love, love, LOVE all of those darling birdhouses! The tall one is my favorite...it's gorgeous after you added new flowers and greeney to it! Ohh...and I just adore those two little bunnies...absolutely darling! And...I love your idea of adding the moss balls to those pretty urns...I've been meaning to make some up and haven't gotten around to it! They look soooo pretty displayed in the shelf with all those whites!!! Yep...it's looking mighty "Springy" at your place, my dear! Very pretty!!!

Warmest wishes,

Giiirrllll, you are one creative mountain woman! I this these transformations are so inspiring. I never would have thought to do them & I see stuff like this all the time at GW. I just don't have the vision, I guess.
Well done!

I envy you all your white stuff! I need to look for more of that.
