A New Old Birdbath

After setting up our new bird feeders yesterday I finally got around to using some of the leftover wood from building our pergola to create a stand for an existing bird bath that had fallen into disuse.

I attached some 2x5 feet to the end of the 6x6 beam to stabile it and then simply set the existing birdbath on top. I would like to find some way to attach the dish to the top of the beam, but it needs to be easily removed for cleaning, so I wouldn't really want to use construction adhesive or something else that is considered permanent.

I am a big fan of re-using materials in the garden and this was so easy to do. It took me about 15 minutes total from beginning to end to attach the feet, so it was quite a reward for such a small investment of time.

What do you have lying about your garage or garden that can be put to better use? You might just surprise yourself with your creativity!
