It's A What?

Do you know what this is?
Would you buy it?


I bought it at a yard sale, it is a bird perch...
for quite a large bird I might add...

Well I don't have a bird...
so how about...
a candle holder?


I removed the wooden perch, and added a distressed wooden shelf!


Pretty cool, huh?


It looks great hanging from the gazebo....


I can't wait to light the candles tonight!


And here it is at night...






I'm really glad I bought it!


Linking to these beautiful blogs...

  2. I agree with Laurel....very cool!!! It makes a great candle holder and is perfect for the gazebo. You are right....that would have been one big bird for that perch!

  3. Great idea! I probably would have walked right by it and never thought of the possibilities! You should take a night time picture of it in your gazebo all lit up-bet it's pretty!

  11. Love the piece, what a great addition to your area. I have to admit I doubt I would have come up with such a smart idea for this piece either. Thanks for sharing.

  12. What a lovely transformation! I was thinking that would be a cool towel rack until of course I noticed just how huge it is! Good find and good make-over!

  25. A candle holder looks so much better than a bird stand, and more useful too. I love your thoughts on changing it over, looks great!
