Birdhouse Makeover

Bright colors or muted plain, which is your preference?

Mine is bright colors, the brighter the better.

So a little brown birdie house is now a colorful abode!

Acrylic paints provided the pizazz.

The birdhouse joined a few others on a bench in the backyard.

I'm happy with the results.

There are a couple of little ones on the bench, too. I started out 
painting those to see how they looked in color.

There's still an identical house ready to be painted.

Why have plain when you can have a burst of color for the backyard? Fun, fun, fun.

Hope the birdies like it, too!

You are so talented to be able to think ahead about the colors! I LOVE BRIGHT TOO!

Love the bright colors on the birdhouses; maybe they will attract the hummingbirds!

We do have a lot of birds around here, but don't feed them per se. They have a lot to choose from at this time of year. We have a lot of berry bushes that grow wild and I see the birds eating the berries. I may have seen a Scarlet Tanninger a few days ago! Have to google it as my bird identification skills are minimal. I rely on knowledge gained many years ago, when Mr. Sanborn came to our little school and presented a weekly nature hour. Do you remember that?

Oh Susan
Your birdhouses came out just great. I love the bright colors. I do not feed the birds in my yard. There is plenty of food for them in just the bushes and trees and plants..I used to have a bird feeder but got rodents to eat from it so I removed it...I see tons of birds, butterflies and bunnies in my yard on a daily basis.

That's the cutest little birdhouse ever. Yes, I love the bright colors you used. It looks like a fairy birdhouse. I don't have any bird feeders in my back yard, and I usually just let the birds come straight to me. It's magical to me, and I feel very blessed.
