Project #1...Check!



This was project #1 on my crafty to-do list, and when I first put it up on my TV cabinet, I hated it. But it grew on me and once I decorated around it, I quite like it! I used a power grinder to remove the surface rust (I used it for about two minutes, and then Michael finished it for me), then spray painted it white, then antiqued it with some dark brown acrylic paint. The sanding and the spray painting were easy, but the antique-ing was really a tedious process. I think it was worth it though! I love the little birdie.
