Unconventional Canvas

Unconventional Canvas
I plan to paint several birds on the walls scattered around the house.
I thought would be fun for my guests to find all of them...like a treasure hunt :)
On the Wall
This is the first one. I'll show you the process...

This is such a cool idea. Your colourful birds will look amazing against the concrete walls.

Those walls are divine. And we already know your birds will look brilliant painted on them, but I am still excited to see how they finish up!

I'm planning on painting a mural down my hallway - birds will most certainly be involved since I'm still obsessed with the little things - but I can't quite decide exactly what I'd like to do yet!

Have fun painting Geninne :)

Fantastic idea. I've been looking at our concrete apartment walls, wanting to brighten them up (picture hooks of all kinds refuse to stay up so we have duct taped posters instead!). Maybe I'll paint them...
