30 Projects in 30 Days: #27 0 comments

Sep 24, 2013 | , ,
This was one of those projects — you know — the kind that was only supposed to take a couple of hours but ended up taking more like, six.

I saw a primitive-looking birdhouse a while back in Country Living, I think. I’ve had it in the back of my mind for a while that I’d like to make one. And…since we have all of this scrap lumber lying around I thought it would be a good idea to make it project #27. The Saltbox.
There he is again…

Anyway, the roof boards are actually leftover pieces of the cedar lap that we pulled off of the house, just flipped backwards. That piece of tin on the peak of the roof, it’s flashing we had to pull out from behind the siding up on the house dormer. TD laughed at me for keeping it, but I knew I’d find a use for it somewhere.
Keepin’ it real.
Since nobody knows what the heck this thing is, I decided to deconstruct it. I have another use in mind for it, but for this project I just need the screen.
A coat of thick coral chalk paint on the house and gray on the chimney and there you have it.
