I wanted to show you what I have been working on lately!
I had an old lamp that broke and decided to upcycle it.
I saved the shade for a garden totem and was going to trash the stand but I thought I may be able to make a bird bath or garden trellis out of it. I decided on the birdbath. One of the legs on bottom was broken so I took the other 3 legs off and it was the perfect height to be able to see it from inside the house! I bought a large platter at the Goodwill last summer thinking it would work as a birdbath bowl and it did work perfectly! I just used E6000 glue to attatch the bowl to the top and let it dry overnight. Here is my $3.00 Birdbath that allows us to see the birds from our livingroom window!
I just love it!! What do you think? My camera is not working so I apologize for the poor quality phone pics and the finger in the corner but you still can get the gist of my birdbath!
PS Remeber to put a pre 1982 penny or two in it to help prevent algae. 1982 and newer pennies are mostly zinc and won't work!
