A Repurposed Metal Stool

I picked up this seatless stool for a couple of dollars at an estate sale a few months back. The minute I saw it, I thought, wow, that would make either a great plant stand or a fantastic bird feeder!  I just needed to purchase some new nuts and bolts, reattach the legs, and squirt some rust colored spray paint on the shiny bolts.

Love the patina of the multi layered paint

I happened to have an old rusty "bowl-dish" and which fit perfectly in the seat...

I threw in some seed and  whaalaa...

I now have repurposed an old stool into one very cool bird feeder.
This is placed right outside my family room window.
Love watching the birds feast upon the seeds.
