To make this birdhouse resemble a flower, I chose a pattern of alternating faded red and grey vintage barnwood wedges radiating out from the portal and serving as the face of the house. I have stained the ends of each piece with either gray or red (cherokee) gel stain. The red on the front of the wedges is the original barn paint from an early 20th-century barn in Olivet, KS from which all the wood for this birdhouse was taken. The roof is made of beautifully weathered tin roofing taken from a retired chicken coop in Lawrence, KS. Aside from the whimsy, this is a functional and ornithologically correct birdhouse for most common backyard small cavity-nesting birds, such as finches, chickadees, wrens, nuthatches, warblers, and titmice. Like all my birdhouses this one has a metal portal protector, copper-lined ventilation holes on three sides and in the floor, an internal etched ladder for fledglings, a clean-out hatch, and a waterproof roof.

Advice and instructions for locating and hanging this birdhouse are included. See my other birdhouses at http://roundhouseworks.etsy.com
