My Patio Makeover (Part One) Re-Purpose Old and Loved Favorites

I did a Facebook LIVE showing how I re-purposed or re-styled several old and loved pieces from a bird house collection that was on my patio. I don’t believe in tossing out the old if it can be redone in such a manner to match the new style. Please watch this video as it will explain several projects and steps. You will also find pictures below. Some are before and afters.

One of my projects was to turn a sad, but cute birdhouse into something striped and playful. I think it turned out very nice. It looks happy now.

This is the AFTER picture.
Here is the BEFORE picture. It looks so forlorn. It looks much happier in black and white stripe. lol…

For my next project I wanted to add some Polka Dots. Another playful, whimsical print. So this birdhouse roof was treated with black polka dots. I don’t have a before picture but it was a rusty roof.

I added ribbons to the top of almost all the painted birdhouses to bring some buffalo plaid and red accents to each.

Here’s another small birdhouse that just fits between the storage bins I bought from Walmart on my patio shelf.

So here they all sit on my shelf. They all look happy together.

Below is a picture of the RESTYLED Patio Shelf. I bought the storage bins at Walmart. They do not “match” my cushions but the coordinate perfectly. They keep all the necessary patio and outside gear hidden away. My large birdhouse also got a facelift with a new coat of white paint. I kept the aqua/teal birdhouses as is. That color goes perfectly with black and white too.

The Patio Shelf—–AFTER—–
BIG difference. I am happy with it. DIY is great. It is a great sense of accomplishment to do a budget friendly makeover.

Thank you for reading about my patio makeover. You can see more on my Facebook Live video I did. I will link it below.
