I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
right outside my windows On Crooked Creek.
Is it any wonder that birds would be included in my home decor?
The Entertainment Center in On Crooked Creek's Living Room
often awakens Spring with a variety of bird nests and bird statues.
You will find bird statues neatly tucked within vignettes,
especially in On Crooked Creek's Living Room table tops.

While the birds sing sweetly beyond the patio doors,
within On Crooked Creek's Dining Room,
I adore using bird nest and bird statues within my buffet and hutch
and in tablescaping.
within the realms of Studio One,
I took the leap and painted my gold bird statues.

I began by taping off the walnut pedestal base.
Then I painted each bird with a mixture of white and soft grey paints
from within Studio One's paint supply.
Although I was quite pleased and could have stopped here. . .
I proceeded with a thick layering of (dark) Old English Scratch Cover.
The scratch cover does 'bead up' on the paint.
After 24 hours, I did a light wipe down with a soft cloth.
Once the painter's tape was removed,
I proceeded with my latest design atop the hutch
in On Crooked Creek's Dining Room.

Over the top design
from my over the top decision to paint my gold bird statues!
I love Silver!
I absolutely love how the silver compote
elevates the elegance of this embellished bird nest
used within On Crooked Creek's Dining Room tablescape!
My most recent design rests within the primitive cabinet
located at the base of the stairs on the lower level
in On Crooked Creek's Family Room.
Right outside my window, the birds singing sweetly
is the best sound to be awaken to each morning,
On Crooked Creek!
Until next time. . .
