A JUNKTILLERY BIRD BATHJune 20th, 2009 in member junk
Well, I finally got a project finished! This is the bird bath that I built for my sister's yard. The base is an artillery shell casing that I picked up in Canton for $3. It is about 36" tall and 8" in diameter and has a screw on lid for storing ammunition. The vendor had 3--I bought one and talked one of my sisters into buying one. Wish now I had bought the 3rd one. When we were carrying them to the car a lady that we met looked at her husband and said that some of the junk people bought never ceased to amaze her. I told my sisters that after she saw the finished project she would want one too! LOL The top is a disc from a farm implement. The bird is just a bought one that I picked up in Canton. I'm going to weld my own bird for mine--I'll post pics when I finish. My husband painted the base for me--I really hated to paint over the original finish but the army green just blended into the greenery of the yard and you couldn't really see it. Anyway, it was a fun project.
