A Simple Change

11.20.2011

Just wanted to share a quick little project I did. I was working on the table setting for Thanksgiving in the dining room and brought out my pheasants that I used last year.

This is the before. The plain birds looked okay, but they just needed a little dressing up.

I pulled out my trusty craft paint in Venetian Gold and just started brushing it on. I didn't want them solid so I just lightly brushed over them. Then I used a black craft paint on the base.

He is standing a little taller don't ya think?

It only took about ten minutes to do and now they are just a little fancier.  Now, quit trying to peek at my table setting.

You can come back later to see it.

Enjoy your day!
