This was so much fun to make!! There are a total of 6 birdhouses on the post.

I only see 2 and part of a third--
Show us more, please!
Did you build all 6?
Looks like Bridal Wreath plant in the background.
Beautiful!

I only see two as well, but those two are really cute! The idea of putting them all on one post is interesting too!

I see four but I'd like to see them clearer!
Great idea. What did you make the post out of?

Here is the whole she-bang, taken today. I sunk a 4/4 post into the ground, after I painted it that gorgeous red. Then I affixed a few birdhouses, some purchased, some painted and decorated myself. Glad you like it! It is certainly a topic of conversation by anyone touring my yard!

Thanks for the additional pics. Lovely! But back to Kathy's question..."What did you make the post out of?" I see it's a 4X4 but it looks textured. Did you purchase it that way? or did you doctor it up a bit? Never seen anything like it...inquiring minds want to know! :)

It is just a pressure-treated 4x4. The marks on the wood came with it!

Thanks for showing us the WHOLE thing!
I have a swinging chair like that-Maybe I will
put it outside since I don't have it up anywhere.
I was wondering about the texture of the post too.

Love the stone birdhouse & the "house" 2nd 1 so cute & the chair & dog are neat too!! Pressure treating is supposed to keep termites at bay!! Hope it works out well & you get lots of boarders!! Jan

about the texture...

it's just a pressure treated post. Most of the PT posts
have those marks on them. Looks almost like big staples had
been put in them

Great job! I think they do that to help the pressure treatment soak into the wood. I don't see a Bentley but the dog is cute!(lol) LOVE that cool chair!
