We've been working on staging our house to sell it (don't you just love moving?!), so we've been buying artwork and decorations.
We're decorating the second master in kind of a shabby chic style, so I've been looking for something to hang on the wall in there. I found a few things online, but I just wasn't ready to commit to any of them.
Then we went to Hobby Lobby and wandered and wandered...
And my husband found this (on clearance!):
He has a good eye. The color wouldn't work, but we looked it over and decided we could take it apart and paint it.
We painted the birdcage "Catalina Mist" and the wooden part is a cream colored crackle paint. As an aside, we should really learn to READ the paint cans because the crackle paint was supposed to be step 2 of a 2 step process. Whoops! It didn't crackle all that much, but we were ok with the results.
Before and After:
If only the walls weren't white, but I'm not painting them just to move! :)
