Fun Quick Stuff

These are a couple of quick little things that I made. These two little birdhouses came from Michael's. I just painted them & used mod podge on them. They turned out cute, my daughter keeps stealing them & putting them in her room.

Next is a little small stool that I found at Goodwill. I forgot to take a before picture but it was yellowish-brown with a picture of peas on it.....it was kinda weird & way ugly. First I painted it gray,then a freehanded a branch on it. I hate using stencils,they drive me nuts! For the bird I drew it out on a page of an old encyclopedia & attached it with mod podge. Have I ever mentioned how much I love that stuff?

Here are two little wooden boxes that I did the same thing to.....painted them pink,drew branches and this time I made a cherry blossom design with paper & mod podge. These turned out really sweet & girly!
