Shabby Chic Bird Key Makeover

Hello, lovelies! I am terribly sorry for my absence this month, but I have been on Spring Break for the past two weeks. So,  I have been super busy working. I was able to get a job for the spring and summer at a beautiful greenhouse/garden shop in my hometown. But, I did not take pictures of it. Shame on me!

I do have a quick project to share with all of you though. I mentioned this project in one of my previous posts from this month: March Craft Projects.  What I originally intended to do was to recreate the Refurbished Key Portrait Tutorial  from Amy's blog Mod Podge Rocks:

However, I have yet to find a pretty frame that I am happy with.  So, for now I have just given my rot iron bird key a shabby chic makeover.  Here is a close up of the the finished product:

 Here is a shot of my shabby chic bulletin board and my key:

I decided to hang this key above my shabby chic inspired bulletin board that I made last year.  I hope you like it!  I used Apple Barrel Ivory White Gloss Paint that I purchased for under $2 at Wal-Mart.  I used a dry brush technique to give the key a shabby chic feel.

I absolutely can't wait to display this in my apartment one day.  I hope you are all doing well!! Leave me a comment below and tell me what craft projects you are working on this month.
