birds on resalvaged wood

I wanted to add a personal touch to my messy kitchen, to show that while being a messy slob I am at least a (slightly) creative one... We found a nice piece of wood awhile back on our way home from school. It seemed to be a piece of a cabinet that had been taken apart. I really liked the color and the size, not to mention the nifty little hole at the top. I decided to put scrapbook paper birds on it, and used acryllic paint for the beak, eyes, outline as well as the border. The border detail matches a little drawer cabinet that I revamped. I left the background as it is to show the lovely color of the wood, but I did use a matt finish. I threaded some satin ribbon through the hole so I could hang it.
