Before I start, I wanted to let you know that all my "found object" creations are custom pieces. There will never be another piece exactly like it because my found parts dictate what the end result will be. All birdhouses are primarily decorative BUT can be used outdoors. All of my birdhouses are weatherproof and fully built with the idea that birds could dwell in them. But be sure that the house is placed, hung or mounted in a covered or shaded place to prevent the house from getting too hot or too cold. I try to use all "found" parts in hopes to recycle items and extend their life and keep them away from landfills. I guess you could call them "green birdhouses."

It's been a little while since I've made one of my custom vintage license plate birdhouses. Here's the latest! It features a vintage yellow and green license plate from Illinois. At the bottom is a vintage aluminum teapot with a brass serving tray at the bottom. I soldered a piece of old brass firescreen to the front as an art element. On top, I mounted a silver gumball machine top to a copper teapot top and finished things out with a brass light fixture ring. At the side, I fashioned a vintage silverplate spoon as a handle. This birdhouse can be enjoyed sitting somewhere or hanging from a great spot.

Here are the measurements...
Height: 15"; Width (side to side):9.5"; Depth (front to back): 7.5".
All of my creations are carefully and securely packaged. I ship exclusively with FedEx because I've found them to be the safest form of shipping and provide the best handling and care of my items. I also provide a FedEx tracking number upon shipping your item(s). If actual shipping seems a little higher, it's because I use slightly larger boxes to make sure your one-of-a-kind item arrives safely to you and is packed appropriately. I offer FREE INSURANCE that is including in the shipping and handling price.

A lot of time and love goes into every upcycled creation of mine. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Please contact me with any questions.
