When I was thrifting up in Brainerd MN during a recent trip to the cabin, I found these beautiful little Butterflies for only 29 cents! Since then, I've been brainstorming a cute way to show them off.

I found this oval plaque from JoAnne fabrics, and after using my 50% off coupon it was only $1. What a deal!

So I pulled out my assortment of acrylic paints, and decided on a nice, almost metallic brown color. I think it was called "Cappuccino." Yum! =) After 2 coats of paint and a little craft glue, I had the perfect "Butterfly Specimen" art.

Now it's a lovely addition to the "picture gallery" in our living room.

I love how easy it is to add to this grouping, I started out with just the picture of the birds and have been slowly building it up.

So that's my latest project. How about you? What have you been making lately?

I'm linking up this project here:
