Rustic Birdhouse

7:29:00 AM



This old table needed a new life...
It wasn't a very good table anymore, 
the top was warping,
 and it wobbled....

So I did what I do... and I cut it apart...



I had a plan the minute I saw those cool keyholes in the legs....


Are you with me on this one?...



Using flat metal brackets on the inside, 
I attached 2 legs side by side 
all the way around the house for the walls.


I gave it a couple coats of Anne Sloan Chalk Paint...
and a coat of wax for protection...



An old hinge for a perch...
and the keyholes made great doors.



Now the smaller birds in the neighborhood
 will have a new home...

  3. I love it, Susan! Don't you love projects that start with something like "I noticed the keyhole design . .". You know you've come up with something pretty creative when that lightbulb goes off! It turned out really cute.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  6. Make sure you link up to Funky Junk's party- for last night. It's a bird theme and I always get a ton of traffic form Donna's rockin party! You could then link up your project another night under the regular crafts portion- twice the mileage!
    Hopefully you don't think I'm meddling!! ;-)
