Found this little bird church at our local Goodwill on 50% off Saturday. It started off with a country blue roof. I lightened up the window stencil by sanding it a bit, and got to work with my glue gun and paint to create a faux ceiling tile treatment on the roof. I planned out my design, and drew it all out on the roof, and then used the hot glue to give it some dimension. After that was dry, I painted the roof with a gold/copper paint, and waited for it to dry. Next came a coat of black paint, which I dabbed off with a tissue. Voilla!
