Do you love birdhouses in all shapes and sizes? This one-of-a-kind handmade birdhouse has always been a favorite of mine. My father built it many years ago and I have always adored it. But It really wasn’t looking so good…
When my father first handmade this birdhouse, it was gorgeous and I loved every little detail he put into it. It sat so beautifully under the backyard trees on a matching handmade stand, which is now completely rotted. But it’s been well over 15 years now, it weathered well, but certainly needs some love and care.
The shingles on the birdhouse’s roof were thin and worn. But still worthy. I first secured the birdhouse’s shingles onto the roof with a few small nails.
Next, I used my old standby Restor-a-Finish and Feed-N-Wax to help preserve, add color, and moisture to these super old dry birdhouse roof shingles.
The next step was to paint the birdhouse. I liked the original white color choice. Especially with the weathered roof shingles and how it stands out amongst the trees. This was easy too with just one full can of white flat spray paint by RUST-OLEAM.
