I bought this old radio at a auction and turned it into a birdhouse! This was my 1st attempt.. I have 4 more to work on. Not sure about the shingles tho... might try cedar on the next one.

That looks really good....would never have thought of that!

How cool is that? Did you put a floor inside for the birds or did you leave it open? Do you have access to copper or metal flashing? That might look good as a roof too!

Great idea!

For outside? Or porch decor? This is a great idea, keep it up w/the next ones, too! Original! TFS! Jeanne S.

RE: old radio

I love the copper/metal flashing idea! Might have to try that. There is a floor in it.. and I put about 6 coats of poly on the whole thing.. hoping it should weather proof it if I decide to put it outside. We have a local online/sometimes live auction house here. They were auctioning a radio repair shop estate. I ended up with 9 radios from 4 lots. I think I can make birdhouses out of 5 of them! Im glad I put it on this forum...Thanks Jan!
