Makeovers with Duck Egg

I found this old birdhouse in the garage and decided to give it a makeover. It was made by a family member years ago. I believe the original color was green. At some point I painted it red.

If I were a bird I wouldn't want to live here.

Time for some serious curb appeal.

I love these little sample containers of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
For this project I chose Duck Egg.
I really like the rough condition of the wood.
The birdhouse is made of scrap lumber.

Nice details.

Much better!

For now the birdhouse is adding a little color to my (ugly) fence.

I bought this frame for less than $4 from a clearance end cap at Target.

While working on my birdhouse project I decided to use the Duck Egg on my "bargain" frame.

I printed and popped a recent daffodil photograph into the frame. Here it is with the tool boxes I painted for a previous blog post.
