Hannah from Lovely Little Life has a funny story about how she acquired this birdhouse.  “It was my mom’s,  and when she moved it went in the yard sale pile,”  she explains.  “As a joke, my father-in-law put it out in front of my house to see if I would notice, ha ha!”  I left it there out of pure laziness, but after awhile it started to grow on me–eventually it called my name.”

Sara from Thrifty Treasures had a piano bench that had seen better days.  She also had a sample can of paint in a bright coral color that she was interested in using.  Since Sara usually gravitates towards softer colors, she wanted to try that bright coral on something small, first.  The old piano bench was a perfect opportunity.
