I took those bad boys out back and primed them up with some spray paint, back and front.
Then I picked out a lovely blue spray paint for the top coat (Mountain Blue). BTW- I highly UN recommend the Krylon spray paint. It doesn't spray from any direction. That is officially on my must have list from now on.
Once the primer was dry on both sides (as much as my patience could handle), I painted them.
While they were drying, I took some sticky dots and tried to get a rough layout of where I wanted them on the wall. I tried to take a picture of this, but those tiny dots just didn't show up. It ended up being a picture of a blank wall.
So, once I had the layout I wanted, I just substituted the dot for the little nail that the birds are held up by. Then when they were ready, I just popped the birds onto the nails.
It was SO SO easy and I think it looks like a million bucks now.
