Cheap Cheap Bird Make Over
I bought these birds at the Dollar Tree and wasn't sure what I was going to do with them. It is difficult to see in the picture but the main body of the bird is actually textured with sand.
I decided to just spray paint them a slightly lighter color... I used:
I like using this spray paint because it has a gloss finish.

I feel like these pictures just do not do justice! You aren't able to tell how much better they look, but they do! Before they looked very cheap (well probably because they were...) They look SO much better with just a coat of spray paint (and now the sand isn't getting all over the place either). I have seen numerous ceramic birds around at places like Pier One, Pottery Barn, Cost Plus World Market ranging from $5 to $12 a bird.
Total Cost For Me:
I already had the spray paint on hand :)
