I found this hideous weensie pheasant under glass at Salvation Army ($1) Saturday. I was looking for a sweet little tea cup and saucer for a gift basket, but didn’t find that of course.
Instead, this ugly little bird with fake grass but it was in a glass cloche with a wood base. Isn’t it just wonderful?!
The glass wouldn’t let go of the base, so I soaked the whole mess in a cup of warm soapy water…it just popped right off then. I cleaned the glue off the base and sanded it really well.
I used a turquoise enamel I had leftover from another project…perfect color, distressed it real good after that and I was good to go!
It’s only about 4” tall and makes a great way to display a special seashell or crystal. Oh, and can I interest anyone in a lovely pheasant?
That’s all I have for now…Hope you are having a good week!
I am linking to these great parties…
