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!
