Salvaged Chair Bird Bath

Posted by on Mar 25, 2013 in backyard, crafts, garden, garden art | 34 comments

I think the universal cry across all of blog world is. . .

“Where is Spring?!”

And, even though it is 33 degrees outside. . .

And, snow is in the forecast for tonight. . .

I am hopeful.

Simple Bird Bath

Old Chair and Terra Cotta DIY Bird Bath @ DaisyMaeBelle

This hope moved me to my cold garage of “possibility” this morning,

where I found this old chair.

I bundled up and braved the cold wind. . .

and, purchased this terra cotta saucer at Home Depot.

I swiftly set it inside the chair frame.

Snapped a super quick picture before my fingers froze.

And, rushed back inside.

Where I dreamed of warm weather.

Envisioned beautiful butterflies. . .

stopping by this saucer of water. . .

on the way to their nectar.

I am hopeful.

Life to the full,

  1. Sorry it is so cold…but looks like the birdies will be happy when they come out of hiding!!

  2. What a cute Idea….love! Would love it if you came by One More Time Events and shared it….… hope to see you there:)

  3. I cannot believe that saucer fit that chair so perfectly! You know your stuff, woman! By the way, ice pellets hit me as I walked in my building this morning on campus. 🙁 – Karen

  4. I am so happy to see this posting. I love this idea. I have a chair with tiny pieces of broken china in pinks, burgandy and the seat has gotten messed up and we just didn’t know what to do with it. Here is the answer. Thank you

  5. Love it. My birds are feeding and bathing despite the cold so keep at it.

  6. I have a couple of chair like this. Great inspiration.

  7. we had no school today because of the snow, and it is still coming down though a lot has melted throughout the day as it’s been only on the cusp of freezing. but the funny thing is that the birds are all out there chirping, even as all this snow is falling!!! love the birdbath! 🙂

  8. What a great chair, Melissa! It might not be too bad ~ the snow ~ we were forecast to get 3 – 6 inches and didn’t get too much at all. Even though it was falling all day today, it isn’t sticking in the street.

  9. Really creative idea! The chair looks fabulous.

  10. What a great and decorative idea! I’ve been collecting bird bath ideas on pinterest but this is my favorite. I agree, where is spring? lol

  11. How clever! Love this idea!

    I would love for you to link this up to a new party I am hosting with four other bloggers, Give Me The Goods Monday! Your links will show up on five blogs! You can go here to link up:

  12. Great chair – if you place a large flat rock in saucer the birds will use it – it will warm up in the sun and keep water more tepid.

  13. What a cute idea! No doubt you’ll be rewarded when it warms up a bit! =D

  14. That is so cute.. I just love it and YES bring on SPRING !!!!!!!!!!
    Stop by and visit me sometime at The Rusty Pearl Blog

  15. Oh I agree that is so cute and the saucer fit in there so nicely!

  16. This is so smart. I am pinning!

    Visiting from Dukes and Duchesses Project Inspired.

  19. I love this. Why didn’t I think of that??? Connie

  20. Hi, I’m visiting from project inspire Linky party. Cute idea! Love the little chair. Your going to make some little birdies real happy. It’s funny how when you have a lot if cold weather you want it to hurry and be spring or summer. Here in Texas we would like more cold weather because it gets so hot here and we need more cold to kill the bugs. Have a great day and I hope you get your spring weather soon.


  21. What a cute little chair and I love what you did with it! Keep warm!

  22. I Love this! It’s such a neat idea and looks wonderful 🙂


  23. I LOVE this idea! I have a chair without a seat that I had no clue what to do with! A bird bath is an AH-MAZE-ING idea. It would make a PERFECT mother’s day gift! I’m so excited!

  29. That is such a cute idea! It’s also a quick, easy way to get something you eventually want to fix up out of the garage and put to good use until you can get to it. I have an old ice cream parlor stool that I have been meaning to refinish, but would work beautiful as a bird bath in the meantime! Thanks for the inspiration!
