Bird House

This past weekend we went camping and it was so beautiful outside but freezing cold!!

Something about being outside just seems to reconnect you with nature and gave me some great ideas that I wanted to incorporate in my laundry room. ( Stay tuned for my laundry room tour later this week!!) I had this plain bird house and wanted to spruce it up a little, so with a little stenciling and moss from the craft store this is what I came up with:

So cute right!! I had a little black and white paint and mixed them together, just so the black didn't look to harsh, and used a paper towel as my sponge/brush and stenciled it on the front side. Then added the moss to the roof. I also had some dried flowers and a little birdie on hand and added that too! And there you have it!! Got it done while my little boy was napping!!

Here it is after:

What kind of inspiration do you get from being out doors?
