Musical Birdies

With the help of a new bed, I'm slowly redoing the spare bedroom in our house. I wanted to be a little more bold with the wall color in that bedroom, since it is the spare and the only people that really go in there are my Mom and Sister when they stay with us! With an old wrought iron bed (pictures soon) I am going for a shabby chic look. So I wanted to repurpose some frames and art that I already had in the room that were $1.99 a piece.
I found these guys last fall at a garage sale for 25 cents a piece! Score!
So, I used my trusty mod podge and go to work applying torn pieces of the sheet music.
(Don't mind the tacky silver nail polish.. I promise it's gone now!)
After that was dry I used my Silhouette (notice a trend with all my recent projects??) and cut out two shapes of birds. I stenciled those on with some black acrylic paint and free handed some branches for them to sit on.

I spray painted the frames with some 99 cent spray paint from Lowe's. And..... birdie love again!
They go so well in the spare room. I can't wait to show you the whole room once it's complete!!

  1. I want to come see the Silhouette! I'm having a hard time understanding exactly what it is. The end results are pretty awesome, though!

  2. Super cute! I am a huge fan of wall art - fabulous job! Love the sheet music backgrounds. Thanks so much for joining the Sunday Showcase. Hope you have a wonderful week! ~ Stephanie Lynn
