Before I start, I wanted to let you know that all my "found object" birdhouses are custom pieces. There will never be another birdhouse exactly like it because my found parts dictate what the end result will be. All birdhouses can be used outdoors or for decoration inside. All of my birdhouses are weatherproof and fully built with the idea that birds could dwell in them. 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."

***** If placed outside be sure that the house is placed, hung or mounted in a covered or shaded place to prevent the house from getting too hot if it ends up being occupied.

This custom, ornate birdhouse started as a tall copper coal bin. I chopped the sloped top off so that it would look best with a flat perimeter that sits a silverplate candlestick and glass door knob. Three silverplate casserole tray feet surround the sides. A napkinring, door knob plate and skeleton key assist in forming the front. A silverplate serving tray "serves" as the foundation. And a lot more of this and that to finalize this one-of-a-kind take on old, vintage metal objects.

Here are the measurements...
Height: 18"; Width (side to side): 11"; Depth (front to back): 9.5".
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 went into each one of my birdhouses. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Please contact me with any questions.
