I forgot to take a before picture. This is actually a during picture. Originally this house had no base on it, and the roof was all looking pretty much like the front as you see it here. So, being as the bottom of this was pretty much rotted out, (it was found in a pile of leaves headed for the trash) I decided to rescue it and give it a new lease on life for another year or two. So I built the base, painted it with exterior paint and added a few embellishments. Here is the final result. I have not put it outside yet, but probably should as this is the nesting season for the birdies and it did actually have a lot of nesting material I had to clean out so I know they did live here.
Meanwhile, I've taken on another one. This one comes from another one that was pretty distraught. I had purchased it years ago at the Tulip Festival and I remember paying $40.00 for it which just about blew my mind that I would actually pay that much. Well you can't tell yet what the final house looks like, it was just beautiful. Again, I didn't take a before picture.
Hope you are enjoying your creative side and thanks for stopping by.
