I bought this sweet little birdhouse at the Goodwill for $5.99 this past Christmas. I haven't a clue what to do with it. I know I will have to take the garland off of it. Do I paint it white, cream, red, yellow, multi-color?

Help! Any ideas? :)

Here it is next to my chalkboard in the kitchen with that sweet famous saying on it.

Hope you're all having a good week so far. I was out yesterday with a terrible migraine and still have a bit of one this morning. Ugh.

I would just go back to bed !!!!!!
The whole day walking around with a headache is not fun ;P
Or take a medicine against headache
Take care of yourself ;)

Birdhouse ???? ( I do not know )!

Very cute birdhouse, and the price...WOW! Great saying, too, and one I can definitely agree with! Hope you're feeling much better today...migraines can be the pits! Take good care!

Paint it and sugar it! When I say sugar it, I mean glitter it. I think it would be wonderful.


Fete et Fleur said...

P.S. Sorry about the migrane. I hope your better today.

I'm so glad that Quincy did not get sick.

Paint it whatever color your mood is :-)

I hope the migraine is gone now. I have been fortunate to not have had any in years... but I do remember the pain and it is definitely no fun.

Tim said...

Paint it white with red trim to match your table? Maybe you shouldn't paint at all because migraines and fumes don't mix! Just relax:)

Kathleen said...

I agree about the glitter..at least on the roof of your birdhouse. Hope you soon feek fine! Hugs, Kathleen

Oh I feel for you - migraines are the WORST. Excederin extra strenth always help mine.

I bet you will be make the bird house look great - can't wait to see it when you are finished.

Hi Michelle,
I would just luv that hand cream recipe that you mentioned. Hint....Hint....Hint.
Oh & I just luv ur pin up girl pic's to describe your mood. Those are great.
Love & Prayers,

Oh migraines are not fun. My best friend has to take a shot in the arm when she gets hers, not fun, but it helps a lot.
I would paint the birdhouse a waterproof white paint or sealant so I could put it on my deck in the spring.

Hope your feeling better and I love the birdhouse.. I think the cream color would be great.. I also have to say I love the chalkbird. As a fellow migrane sufferer.... I feel for you.. take care.. hugs to you.Tracey

Aww, I hope the darn migraine will leave soon. Those things are nasty.

I think the birdhouse actually looks lovely as it is, but you can paint it in colors to match whatever decor or room you'll have it in or next to. Or do a contrasting color!

Feel better! Hugs!

I love the birdhouse. I wish we had wonderful things like this at our goodwill. Paint it red!! It will brighten your day. Hope you feel better soon.

WHat a greatfind and deal! Ideas? Maybe wrap whatever is seasonal around it (ivy, leaves, garland) with some twinkle lights. One can never have too many twinkle lights in my estimation. Hope you are feeling better- headaches are no fun!

Hi Michelle--love the birdhouse and can't wait to see what you do with it!

Sorry you have not been feeling so well. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Stella does with Linnea too. Thanks so much for hosting her. I love her bow and her dress too. I'm so glad you enjoyed having her!
