So here is what the bird house looked like several days ago after I had sanded it down and added a piece of steel hardware cloth inside: a quarter of an inch up from the bottom so the nest wouldn’t be sitting flat on the floor of the house. I also drilled four drainage holes in the bottom of the house to help keep it from getting water-logged when it rains. I also replaced the door guard that came with the house,(Its edges were razor sharp, I didn’t want the birds cutting themselves) with the one I salvaged from the old house. I base coated the whole thing with Folkart Outdoor Paint in the 6240E Cotton color.
Back at the beginning of July, during the first week, something happened to my old bluebird house. We had a thunderstorm come through and I’m thinking the wind caught the old birdhouse just right and ripped it off the tree. So I bought a new bluebird house and have been working on getting it ready to hang on the tree. Lil’ Mo and B.B. Jo have been lending a paw, mostly supervising, since they have no thumbs that would help them grasp things better. They try to be helpful.
So, this is my blog. A place to share about my crafting, gardening and various things.
