Birdhouse Makeover from Drab to Fab!!!
To the right is a very mistreated birdhouse with hot glue stuck to the front and a half painted roof...
Waa Laaaa! It has been to the Shabby Chic Beauty Salon and gotten the works! 
First I painted it white with a pretty pink roof! 
Then I added a pretty rose decal to the front, I had a hard time getting it to stick so I had to let the wood glue dry over night and then paint over my glue mess. LOL~
It found a home on my entryway table. 
Hope you liked it, I think it turned out really was super cheap. Thats what I love!
Check back for the Shabby Bench Redo!

  1. Hi Olivia! What a precious birdhouse! I love all you've done to it. Now that vintage buffet is so beautiful. I have one very similar to it but mine isn't painted white.
    Thank you so much for popping in to see me and I do hope you'll come back sometimes.
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  2. Hi Olivia! We love cheap! And we really love cheap and pretty!! Your birdhouse is adorable. HPS and a wonderful weekend to you. xoxo Lynn

  3. What a brilliant job you've done - from frumpy to totally fabulous. And I love the way you've displayed it, on your dressing table. How original! It's made a lovely vignette.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  4. Happy PinK, Olivia...

    What a transformation...too sweet. I've got two out on the back porch that are beyond shabby and need to be *properly* that word? It is now. ♥

    What a great job you did fuffing up that lovely birdhouse. You have so inspired me to get my projects ready for painting once the weather warms us a bit here in N.E. I have birdhouses, vintage trays and some pretty flower buckets to get ready for summer decorating.

    I'm really pumped up now to get going. Now only if our weather would cooperate.

    Have a great weekend.
