I've been painting away - a chest, a buffet, a chair, but the finished, buffed, and photographed projects are the little starter projects.
I decorate with birds all over the house. I think there may be a bird or birds in every room.
After I painted my first blue frame (see 1-2 posts down), I had this nervous paintbrush wanting to spread the pretty Annie Sloan Provence color paint...and I had these 4 birds. They have always travelled as two pairs. Sometimes one pair has been on the back porch while the other pair fluttered on a bookshelf. Most recently, one pair perches at my bedside while the other pair makes its home in my bathroom on the way too big "plant shelf."
A pair of birds in blue?...happiness!
After birds: the one on left is finished, while the one on right only had paint, and is still waiting for a coat of clear wax, then dark wax, then a rub-off and buff.
The finish, both color and texture remind me a bit of McCoy pottery.
