Another 'Barnwood Bloom' & Birdhouse

Finished this 'Barnwood Bloom' today & had lots of fun with it...I really like how it turned out...

Used old barnwood board & added 1 coat of Poly,
a gas stove grate & stained glass candleholder (both TS finds), (pound in staples & a screw)
a piece of rod from a broken patio umbrella,
the 2 leaves are cut from 2 shelf brackets (DH had to cut them off for me)...
& GE Silicone II w/a marble for the flower center,
& added a couple eye screws & wire to the back so it can be hung or free-standing.

waaa-laaa... a beautiful 'Barnwood Bloom!'

I like how the grate frames it... like you're looking thru a window!

Also wanted to use this 'hummingbird' GS find ...from a windchime, I think maybe...so DH cut out this birdhse (heavy duty old barnwood) & we assembled...I painted it gray & added some 'Hammered' spray to the roof...it will look nice hanging somewhere for somebody! TFLookin'! Jeanne S.

Your barnwood blooms are always beautiful! LOVE them all! And your birdhouse with the hummingbird is just too cute. I don't know how you ever sell any of them....I'd want to keep them all.

Thanks, GJers, for you kind comments.
DH & I enjoy old barnwood & I do have lots of birdhouses here on our acreage..this one sold Sat morn at FM & it went to a good home!

I had 3 diff interested 'lookers' on the Barnwood Bloom...may be in my gardens yet! LOL! I'm thinking about trying a birdhouse w/one of those gas stove grates...I got 3 of 'em this past yr at a TS (one is cracked thru). Thanks, again! Jeanne S.

Love the simple lines of the birdhouse, so sturdy & with the little hummmer so sweet! The gas grate is great in bringing out the beauty of the flower & neat leaves. Everything always looks better on barnwood, I love it! Jan
