Three Little Birds Art

“Three Little Birds” by Bob Marley is one of my all time favorite songs.  (I know, you’re probably thinking, “Now that’s an interesting fact, Carolyn.  Thank you for sharing??”) 

A few months back I saw some really cute art for a baby’s room.  It was basically the song lyrics printed out in pink and blue in a series of cute fonts.  I wish I could link to the source, but I can’t for the life of me find the blog.  If anyone has seen it, please let me know and I’ll edit this post to include the original inspiration for this project.  I decided to create my own version of “Three Little Birds” wall art to hang above the TV in our spare bedroom.

I started with these two framed prints I used to have hanging in my bathroom.

After pulling about a million staples out of the back of these I finally removed the print and matting from both frames.  Unfortunately, the print was stuck down tightly to the matting.

So I just mixed up some craft paint and painted right over the print.   I didn’t paint all the way into the center of the print because you won’t be able to see it anyway and I’m kind of lazy like that.

I took some coppery craft paint and went around the edges of the matting to hide my messy painted edges.  I spray painted the frames Oil Rubbed Bronze.

I printed out my song using some super cute free fonts from KevinandAmanda.com.

Value of a happy song in your heart: priceless!
