DIY Birdhouse Tutorial
This bright and beautiful birdhouse is the perfect place for your feathered friends!
- 2-3 Paint Different Paint Colors (shown here: Lazy Linen, Bling Bling, and Sunset Glow)
- Bucket of Water
- Lint Free Rag
- Clear Coat
Paint the roof the color you want to show through the top coat (we used Lazy Linen).
Once the first layer has dried, add your second layer of paint in a contrasting color (we used Bling Bling).
Wait about an hour until the paint feels dry to the touch.
Once your final paint coat is dry, get a bucket of water and a lint-free rag or scouring pad. Make sure that your cloth is nice and wet, but not so much that it drips. Use the wet rag to gently rub across the surface in a back & forth motion. You can choose to distress only the edges of your piece or to distress it on the flat surfaces as well.
Now paint the body, bottom and perch of the birdhouse (we used contrasting colors for a bigger pop!)
Once the paint has completely dried (24 hours), you can hang it; for extra protection from the elements, we suggest finishing your bird house with our Clear Coat
