AN EMBELLISHED HAWK'S CREEK CONDO
PUTTING BLING ON MY FEATHERED FRIENDS NEW HOME
My daughter gave me a cute birdhouse she no longer used in her yard. I never turn down anything for free..really... that is a fact which my over flowing workshop can attest to. I can always find a use for everything, especially when it is a new home for my feathered buddies. You can see in the background the birdhouse as it was when I toted it to Hawk's Creek. I had an old pedestal just waiting to be used. I scraped off the old chipping paint( you should always wear a mask when sanding or scraping as some of the old paint is lead based)
You can add interest to any existing birdhouse by using various objects. Use old tools, pieces of machinery, broken bits of jewelry, doorknobs or even old toys. Use your imagination. I have plans for some really strange birdhouses. I bet you have some quirky ideas yourself.
I decided to add a few pics of my many birdhouses. Some original art projects, others gifts or purchased just because I liked them and one day I will add my own touch those waiting in the wings --or that should be waiting for wings...
