Ugly To Pretty Darn Cute

Ever see those ugly old pictures are Goodwill or Salvation Army? They usually come in a pretty cool frame, but the picture is so nasty it ruins the whole thing. They usually look a little like this:
Well, I had some like that. The prints weren’t bad as they had some bird art on them. I love birds so the prints were fine except the picture itself was old and dingy. It needed some attention. I chose to recreate the pictures and the outcome is much improved.
Enter spray paint.
The cure for almost everything.
It’s fun, cheap and easy.
And quick which helps me to gitter done.
I wanted to create some easy art for my daughters’ room.
I have been in makeover mode for their room for sometime now.
I haven’t finished it yet.
Don’t give up on me.
I promise to show you someday when I finally get it done.
Remember the BEFORE PICTURES of the bird print?
How about some AFTER pictures?
Much better! All I needed was fabric,
scissors and a hot glue gun!
