Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a cute whimsical little project and since it is for the indoors it would look so pretty in a sunroom or three season porch to bring more of the outside in. The instructions are fun and very detailed, and you certainly could modify the colors and designs to your own taste and artistic inclinations. This would be cute with the addition of a feathered faux birdie sitting on an added perch made with a simple twig. Fun!
