I'm sure one can find cheap little cuties like these in every home.
Yes, they are cute :) The problem is - they look kind of cheapy. Because they are cheap.
So what could I do? White can fix everything. Or almost everything.
So I painted my little birdies white. Then I gave them several coats of varnish.
Now when I've done it, I think I should have actually given them a nice solid color - terracotta maybe - and then just white-wash them. That way I could have put the texture into good use instead of trying to cover it with varnish.
But they still look good, ha?
