Recycled Wood Birdhouse & DIY Stand

Recycled Wood Birdhouse-DIY Stand-Iron Shelf Brackets-From My Front Porch To Yours
A few posts back I shared about how we are working on along our backyard a beautiful retreat. If you missed that post you can see it here. Since that post I added a new addition to the backyard.

Recycled Wood Birdhouse-Old Fence Boards-From My Front Porch To Yours
While I was designing on our fall front porch a few weeks back I ran over to the local Farmers Market to purchase corn stalks for the columns. While there I spotted this huge birdhouse made from recycled wood. I am thinking it is made from old fence boards. There is a house on all sides and it was very reasonably priced so home it came with me. It did not come with a stand so I was going to have to wait for Mr. Front Porch to help me come up with an idea on how we could make a stand for it so I could  place it out in the yard.

I remembered in the garage was this stand that I made back in 2008 to display my bibs at craft shows. At the last house I used it as a coat rack in the guest bedroom but here at the new house there was no place for it. That was till now!

I drug it out from the garage and took off all the iron hooks I had placed on it on all sides for the bibs. The birdhouse was made to sit on top of a 2x whatever so it sat perfectly on top. Now I had to figure out a way to secure it to the post.

I went digging thru my stash and found these iron shelf brackets. They were perfect! I ended up placing the long side of the bracket up at the top so that it would stick out past the house so the birds would have a place to sit if they want to.

I contemplated on whether I wanted to paint the body of the bird house or not. For now I am just going to leave it as is.

I secured it to the ground with some anchors we had left over from the boys trampoline.

I think it is the perfect addition to the backyard. Come spring I hope we have some renters. LOL.
