We wanted to a group painting class that seems to be really popular right now and offered all over the place. Instead of spending $30/person on a class we thought we would try doing something like this on our own! We had a great time and would do it again! Ours was smaller than the original in the tutorial because we wanted to make 4. Each person found an image online that they liked to make it more individualized.
Now that I've had a taste of working with wood, I'm ready for more! Ana, you're an inspiration! Thanks for the great site!

Used ultra white paint that we had leftover from painting our interior doors.
Birds were a random 50cent jar in the mismatched pain section at home depot. :)
Used toothpicks for the small writing.
