Thrift Store Painting Makeover

I found a couple of framed bird prints at the thrift store for less than a dollar and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create some cute artwork for my bathroom!

Think of it as a "paint by numbers" and just fill in the shapes! I chose bright colors for the birds and soft shades of mint green for the background to coordinate with other accessories in my bathroom.

After the paint was completely dry I sponged on Mod Podge's Gloss Lustre to protect it from the moisture.

 To update the frames I painted them with a tan craft paint and then rubbed on Rust-Oleum Glaze in Java Brown.

This is a great painting project for those that claim to have no artistic talent or beginner painters. It was super easy!

  2. You are brilliant! I have never thought of this or seen it anywhere else. I'm going to pin it so I have it when I find a picture to re-do!
