As some of you know, I often restore antique picture frames, and I had one sitting around that was in pretty bad shape.
I also had a few pieces of old cedar fence planks and some table legs.
So, I started cutting and nailing. No plans. No real direction. Just wanted to have some fun with this one.
I cut a table leg in half lengthwise to get a pair of columns. The body was made from the cedar fence planks. I made the pitch of the roof with a pair of 45 degree cuts, so that the picture frame molding could be easily used as trim. The perch and the trim across the bottom is also made from picture frame molding.
I decided to do a distressed white wash finish and let some of the gold frame peek through in spots.
By using cedar planks and outdoor grade glue this birdhouse can now be used outside by some lucky bird, or inside as a decor piece.
This was a pretty fun project. I might have to do a few more of these.
