I saw this birdbath on the Crate and Barrel website yesterday and absolutely fell in giggly like with it.
It’s different, not the same ol’ same ol’ cement pedestal number. But $130? Yeesh. I just can’t justify it. BUT then I remembered I have 2 unused plant stands in the backyard just waiting for a spray of black paint and a glazed bowl plopped on top. I found the dish portion at Home Depot for $20 and spent $3.50 on a can of flat black paint. I bought the plant stands a while back for $10 apiece. I don’t count those, though. I think this counts as a “make what you have laying around work” project. As pretty as the original? Probably not, but pretty enough for me. Pretty enough to make up for costing $20 and a little bit of inspiration.
