A little birdie wating for some food.
The completed project ready for the front porch or the garage?
Potato/onion bin as found.
This spring came from an old chair and is now home to a bird nest.
Wishing it was nice enough to have the real thing in a tree in my yard!

While doing some junking I came across this old potato/onion bin and thought it needed a new life! I gave it a fresh coat of paint stenciled some lettering on it distressed it a bit and now it is ready for the birds!

This is GREAT! My husband is using one of these for recycling - I'm going to have to liberate it and stow my bird seed in it instead! Love the bird's nest! C'mon Spring!!
