Go ahead and laugh, I can take it. All the paint is obviously off, another hole has rotted or worked its way though the gourd and the little holes in the bottom that I so carefully drilled for drainage have pretty much joined force and become one larger opening.
My gourd birdhouse was transformed from a "that'll do", or vanilla project, into not only "the ugly" but also "the bad". And I do mean bad in a bad way. Lesson learned: Just because you think you've finished a project doesn't mean you've completed it.
Now, let me show you something that only has to fit into the "Good" category.
Made from 70 year-old barnwood, it's a 6' birdhouse with ten decks, almost 70 units that can easily be opened for cleaning.No, I can't even BEGIN to claim anything to do with the construction of this! A talented gentleman known as "John from Cranbrook" posted this on one of HGTV's message boards. Now, is this thing awesome or what?
