bird art for the screened in porch
I'm so very close to having my screened in porch finished.
I finished spray painting the fan, the vintage rocking chair, the wrought iron garden chairs, and the foot stool.
I also found a really good deal on Ebay for a slip cover for the sofa (it even came with matching pillows!).
The area over the sofa was calling for some art work. Last year at Goodwill I bought a large (and very heavy) decorator style piece of art. I paid $5 and the original stick on the back says it was $30 at Marshall's and even that was a discount price.
The picture on it was pretty, but not really what I wanted.
I had these vintage 1960's gold plastic bird wall hangings that are so easy to find at thrift stores and flea markets. My sister bought them for me earlier this year. They also had a large matching flower piece, but I didn't really care for it, and so I went ahead and donated it.
I spray painted the birds a black satin color, and then I took an old beat up book on bird watching and identification, and I decoupaged the book pages onto the art board using Modge Podge.
Then I had Caleb attach the birds to the board and then the whole piece to the rock wall.
I'm very pleased with how it came out.
