I FINALLY am able to share with you my completed birdhouse! I really did put a bird on it, well, two birds, actually, so it’s a double Portlandia birdhouse.
Take a look at the slideshow below and see what I did. I threw in a few pictures of the snow in there from my back door, too.
After that was dry, I flipped the house over and did the red bird, again two coats. After all that was dry, everything got two heavy coats of spray-one shiny acrylic spray. It turned out quite well!
