Upcycled "Bird Island" Water FountainDecember 19th, 2011 in member junk
I found this great copper and brass bowl/basin and knew immediately what it needed to be turned into. I pulled a gumball machine pedestal and got other parts from a copper canister, silverplate stand, brass light fixture parts and a glass door knob. On the center copper base in the middle, I stamped "Bird Island" so the birds would have a place to catch a drink from at water level. Glass or natural rocks can be placed into the basin for added bird footing. The whole basin top unscrews from the base for easier cleaning.
