A Lamp Birdbath??



What do you do with a gawdy old lamp?

 and a lazy susan ??
and a can of hammered spray paint?? 
You make a bird feeder/birdbath of course!

 To make this you take the lamp shade off and cut off the plug.

You spray paint your lazy susan 
and when it's dry you glue it to the top of the lamp with liquid nails.
Now you have a birdfeeder/birdbath!! Very simple, inexpensive garden art
As I was setting the lamp in my garden I had a bird land and come in to eat!
  I love when God blesses me that way!!
Also, another gift from God for me this morning.



Beauty from my garden!!

Very neat. I made a mini birdbath from an old lamp and an old globe. Thought about using it as a feeder but I figured the squirrels would knock it over.

Super cute - love finding thrift store treasures and this is such a fun way to re-use all those old lamps!
Thanks for joining our Outdoors party.

Wow! I have a lamp I was looking at earlier, wondering "what can I do to make this thing look any better?!" and now I know! I love the shape of your lamp in the garden. It's so fun! Maybe I'll make a bird bath as I'm already feeding the whole entire neighborhood's worth of birds! :)
