Although spring signifies a beautiful symphony of birds, bird-inspired décor is flying high on the home décor trend all year. When paired and blended with the right elements that compliment bird décor, they can definitely be used all year round. But the key lies in whether the color of the bird's ticks all of those boxes that make them easy to fit right in and also make a statement.
These are a few of the many ways that I styled the adorable dusty blue birds this spring. I absolutely love the birds and would hate to put them away once I change my spring color scheme.
I love the idea of adding birds to the décor because they give a space for the eyes to rest, and remind us so beautifully of nature. I often like to pair them with some natural elements like florals, a nest, or eggs for Easter. I also love the idea of using them as paperweights to make them functional in an office space.
Before the spring Decocrated box was revealed, I had my heart set on purchasing white and gold birds to compliment my décor style. I am not a big DIY’er but I can handle small and simple projects. So I had to DIY them into something I could enjoy all year and am excited to share it with you. I love how they turned out!
You will need:
Glossy white spray paint + primer (see below for a picture of what I have used)
Liquid gold leaf (use classic gold to give it a modern farmhouse-y look)
I spray-painted them in glossy white paint plus primer in an open space (my backyard). Using glossy paint is key when spray painting on a ceramic base to give it that shiny natural look. Also because the birds are ceramic, they held the paint very well. I would suggest doing double coats if necessary but read the instructions on your spray paint can. It should tell you how many hours you would have to wait before you can spray again.
After drying for about 24 hours, with a paintbrush, I used liquid gold leaf to paint the beak and back of the bird gold.
I love the way this DIY of the ceramic birds turned out. It transformed the look of these birds to perfectly match my home, and they now are super cute pieces that I am able to decorate with all year long. The little birds add a touch of elegance and pair so well with any color scheme I may have. I also love placing them on the wood pedestal from the same box and the color just pops out and brings so much life to any space.
I love the Decocrated boxes for the versatility of the items and how easily we can DIY them into something we adore more. I can’t wait to pair my beautiful birds with any season to come! They are now here to stay!
