Refurbished Bird Bath

Today I want to share with you my refurbished bird bath.


This bird bath has been with us for at least eight years and two houses.  

It was beginning to look its age and needed some help.

I forgot to take a true before picture, but as you can see below, the top of the bird bath was looking weathered.

Andy sanded it down some more with a wire wheel attachment on his electric drill. 






Here is what it looked like after Andy smoothed it out. 


He then cleaned it up with this grease and wax remover.



It was then ready to be spray painted.  

First we used a primer and then sprayed it with a dark bronze spray paint. 

We had these both in our spray paint stash, so we didn't have to purchase anything for this project. 


Andy is such a great spray painter!



Yay! It looks brand new!


I love adding small pumpkins to it every fall.  

I love how clean and shiny it looks now. 

So much better!!






I love easy and inexpensive projects that don't take a lot of time, but the effects are so beautiful!

Thanks for looking and see you on the next post.
