It sat in our basement for about 6 months...it was trying to be used as a toybox, but nothing ever got stored in there...so I thought I'd give it a makeover. I searched for inspiration and found this coffee table: http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/30929/whats-your-number
Amazing, right? I went back and forth on how to do the numbers, tried Michaels for stencils, and came up with nothing.
Then I saw this (HOW do I make this picture fit?)
done by The Thriftress here . I've seen other birds in painted furniture blogland, but now for the life of me, can't remember where :(
I had just picked up some vinyl birds at Home Goods the week before and thought this box would be perfect for birds. I painted the whole thing a creamy white...3 coats. After it was dry, I placed the birds on the box in a way I liked them. Then I painted over the birds with Cape Cod Gray by Benjamin Moore using 2 coats. I used the birds as a stencil. Once dry, I peeled the vinyl birds off, and voila!
Now, I'm confused as to what it is...I think it could be one of three things:
Entry Bench and Storage
One thing is for sure, it doesn't fit in with my decor. On Craigslist she goes! Have a great Monday, folks!
