I found some great rusty headboards and footboards this summer in a farmers rockpile. I wanted to make birdfeeder stations out of them. I left this one exactly as I found it - rusty and crusty. I elevated it on railroad ties. The birds were coming in as I was trying to hang the feeders up. They love this project even more than I do!!! I am going to sand, prime and paint the next one a bright red so it will really have a pop of color in the woods.
