I painted some birdhouses. I gave 3 to my parents and kept 3. I've never painted something like this, so I practiced on the back of each one, before I tried my design on the front.
I think they turned out pretty nice! My parent's already have birds nesting in the birdhouses that I gave to them. Mine are still empty, but I have some other bird houses in the yard full of nesting birds, so maybe they will be chosen to raise a little family next year.
