A bird...and Some Spray Paint, a DIY project

I shared this SUPER SIMPLE DIY over at ReFresh ReStyle last week, and in case you missed it...
here it is again ;)

Today, I wanted to share a simple idea for a thrift store find. These days I am so busy chasing my three kids around {ages 7, 5, and 9 months} so SIMPLE is about all I am able to do!

It starts with this little bird
 {A thrift store find breaking the bank at 25 cents! }

He started his life as a salt and pepper shaker. Poor thing!
I used some of my kiddos air drying clay to patch up those little holes and then I got out my trusty can of spray pain in a shade of antique white

And....after a few good coats....

He has a new life!
I tend to move things around in my house like a crazy he will get to see lots of new places, but I think I like him best here...
In my art studio where I can keep a good eye on him ;) about that for a simple makeover??
I knew I loved that little bird from the moment I first met him!


  1. I have been scouring thrift stores for finds like this...just to paint white. No luck. I have't found jack.
    This little guy is lovely!

  2. He's a keeper....and how fun to find out thrifting!
    A simple coat of paint....and voila......
