This one is so easy, less than 5 min., oh, except Honey had to clip out the little spike on the top of the candlestick. I get almost every candle stick I see at yard sales. They are also good to display your covered bowling balls on.

The birdbath turned out lovely, dahtzu. I agree ... candlesticks are very useful indeed. Thumbs up

Oh! I love a good idea! Lovey dubby I saw quite a few candlesticks like that at the salvation army store last week! **ideas!**

Lord knows we need birdbaths around here now. They've been emptying my critter bucket since the pool sprung a leak. :/

Love the pattern on that light cover--it has that 60's retro thing going. I have a lamp I got at a yardsale for $1 that is milk white with gold starburst looking asteriks all over that has that 60's look too. Beautiful!

What a cute birdbath.
Well mine is a bit different.
It is an antique cement bird bath/fountain. My son built me a concrete well to sit it in. The well is 6ft wide 3ft deep. We pump water from the well up though the column and let it drip back into the well. I have fish and plants in the well and several frogs have also moved in.

Good rescue, Paul. This is an old one I picked up for a couple of bucks at a thrift store and am going to repaint it to suit myself.

I'm ready for spring to really get here so we can all do more art for the gardens. Your finds are great and can't wait to see them completely finished with flowers all around.
