PAINTING BIRD NESTS ON METAL FLORAL CONTAINERS

It seems like spring, here.  It is so warm and the birds are singing so loudly, like they're calling for their new mates.  It will be nesting time soon, and I wanted to share some metal containers that I painted.


I love painting bird nests.


These will have beautiful floral arrangements in them and something bird related.



Ready to be loaded in my jeep, to be delivered.

(My 1978 Jeep Wagoneer that I drove for 27 years and now sold. I used it for work all of those years and really loved it!)

    1. Thank you! and, the buckets were easy to paint on because the surface was a bit roughed up.
