Lamp Birdbath

I wanted a bird bath for my yard, But I didn't want to pay an astronomical amount for it either. So I went to google and found a couple of random DIY birdbaths that I liked. Using those, I came up with my own birdbath.
Lamp Birdbath Tutorial:
-bowl or wok
-Liquid Nails
First, cut the cord off the lamp. I also took the long handle off the wok.
Next, spray-paint the lamp and bowl/wok. Let the paint dry before you handle it.
Once the paint is dry, dab some Liquid nails onto the brim of the lamp. Next, place the wok on the lamp so it is centered. Let it dry for 24 hours.
Lastly, find a nice place for the bird bath in your yard...
I put mine next to the bird feeder I hung up last week. Let me just say that I am the hit of the neighborhood with the birds...
This project cost me $12. I found the lamp and the wok at my local thrift store...

Such a great idea, and I love how it turned out. I especially love that it is made from recycled items.
