Decorate a Birdhouse with Doodles

I've been trying really hard to spruce up my outdoor spaces this summer.  I'm being super cheap about it too--just trying to use what I have to make it work.

These little birdhouses were in my stash, a couple from the dollar section at one of the local craft places I frequent.  I painted one of them with lovely vibrant primary colors.

 I went in a different direction with this one.  Why not paint it white and have a blank canvas to doodle on?  Why not, indeed.  I drew flowers and a caterpillar, a hash tag and butterfly.  It was fun to do, and I can't recall ever seeing a birdhouse like this before.

When it was dry, I sealed it with an acrylic sealer to protect it from the elements.  I love how it looks outside, and I didn't have to buy anything to make it.  Go me!
