A Repurposed Birdhouse Condo7:53:00 AM
I knew this antique sewing machine cover could be
turned into something else but I wasn't sure what...
until a friend said What about a birdhouse? Condo?
Yes! That was it, a birdhouse condo!
So I got to work...
The first step was to drill 3 holes into the front of the box using
a drill attachment for drilling holes in doors.
I'm sure it has a name but I have no idea.
I painted the birdhouse white with a black roof. With a little paint, the top of the sewing machine case made the perfect roof.
The best part of this project was adding the details... steps, columns, hooks for perches, and all the fun little touches that made this box look like a birdhouse estate
from the good side of the tracks.
I added a thin piece of wood to close up the bottom which can
be removed for cleaning.
With a few pieces of hardware, the birdhouse condo can be attached to a fence, on the top of a post, or even atop
a wooden ladder like the birdhouses below...

The neighborhood birds will be envious
of the best birdhouse estate on the block.
