Birdhouse Makeovers

Have you been to RiteAid lately?  If you haven't, you are totally missing out!  They have the cutest little birdhouses in their garden section and right now they are 50% off.  I have been eyeing these two birdhouses for awhile and finally went and got them.
They are both pretty cute as is but I knew that with a makeover, they would be even cuter.  I picked out some colors and got to work. 
When your husband is an auto body painter, some things tend to wear off on you.  The first thing I did was to mask off parts that I didn't want painted over.  I even used automotive masking tape.  I think my husband would be proud! 
Here is how they looked after they were painted.  How stinking cute are these now?  I wish Cody would let me paint our vintage camper like this but I just have a feeling he wouldn't go for it!
 
It's not a perfect paint job but it is so much better with these colors.  I left the silver but covered up the red, green and blue colors.   
I think these adorable birdhouses are ready to hit the road and take a camping trip as soon as the weather warms up.  I know I am too! 
Aren't the striped awnings so cute?!  Even the windows have curtains tied back on the sides and the front.  It reminds me a lot of my own camper
These will eventually hang somewhere in the yard, but for now they are chilling at the base of one of our trees.  I wonder if birds will love living in these? 
Some close-up shots to see the detail.  These are kind of a flimsy plastic so be careful with handling them.  I already broke the front hitch off of the camper and busted the tailgate on the truck.  Good thing some glue and body work was all it took to fix them! 
And just for fun, a little before and after shot.  So much cuter in my favorite colors!

Oh my, are these ever cute! I adore birdhouses and I painted them for years. Had them all arranged above my kitchen cabinets. Now there are teapots up there. ;-) You know, those are my favourite colours too! Really adorable, and I'm so glad you shared them with us. Have a wonderful day.

Blessings,
Sandi
