An Extreme Make-Over... Birdhouse Edition


Good Morning Birdie Family!!!




This awesome birdhouse was at my Mother's house and really needed some help.



I loved the mossy entrance ...




and the great growth on the roof...



But it had a problem.

All that mossy goodness had rotted Mom's birdhouse.

It was wet and falling apart... It crumbled as I moved it.


This birdhouse really needed an Extreme Makeover, and fast!



In an attempt to save it, I took it apart.

I used wood from an old crate and traced all the pieces of the old birdhouse.



I used the crate slats for the front and back.

Using a hole attachment for the drill, I cut out 2 holes.





The last slat I screwed on held the license plate roof which is removable in case the inside needs to be cleaned out.



I painted the whole birdhouse white.


And added a license plate for the roof.

Alaska? 

These birds are going to think they took a wrong turn!


Some old scrap signage for the side...



I think it's still missing something.



Move that bus!!!!



That's better... a little junk!


Welcome home birdies... welcome home!
