I have always liked "MacKenzie-Childs" things. While looking through the catalog the other day I saw these really cute bird houses. Whimsical and fun! The only problem is the bird house in the catalog costs $200. Since this is a little more than I normally spend on a bird house, I had an idea to make my own.
I found a $6.00 wooden bird house at Hobby Lobby. I started with three coats of white paint for the base and then using a ruler I figured out my black and white squares evenly the whole way around. After that I added color, and to top it off, I hung a crystal on the bottom of the bird house for some bling!
And this is how mine turned out. It's not exactly like the MacKenzie-Childs bird houses, but close enough for me!
