I Can Paint

I’ve spent the better part of the past year convincing myself that I don’t have the skills necessary to hand paint my pieces. Well this past week that all changed.  I picked up this cute little piece for $30 at a garage sale and when I finished painting it I knew it needed something extra.  So as a normal person do I dug out all my extra cardboard boxes from the basement and practiced on them =)  Here is how it all turned out.

It’s just a simple bird on a branch but I felt like that’s all it really needed.  And it was a perfect design to start with.

It’s so cute.  I wish I had a place for it, I would keep it!
