DIY Bird Table Project

I've been doing alot of work in the garden lately to give it a re-vamp and decided to bring an old bird table back to life. 

This involved taking pretty much the whole thing apart, chiselling off an old plywood base, giving it a lick of paint and nailing it to a new freshly painted luscious lime coloured fence post in my little corner of relaxation down at the bottom of the garden. ("....amongst the birds and the bees, lived alot of tiny people called the Poddington Peas" *sorry couldn't resist that* haha).

It was really cheap to do, cost just under a fiver for some paint pot testers - I opted for Purple Pout and Morroccan Orange. The hardest part was unscrewing the rusty old fused nails when taking the original thing apart.

Quite pleased with how it has turned out and already have an idea for my next project in the garden which will involve turning the outhouse into a she-shed... But not until I've given it a lick of paint, you'll have to wait and see how that one turns out, but for now I'll leave you with some photo's from the birdhouse project.
