my hubby and i had found and picked up a concrete bird bath at a yard sale a few months ago. we decided to make it more special and unique by adding mosaic glass tiles. after picking out the mosaics we didn't get around finishing the project so my hubby decided to turn it into a "brothers-in-law diy project" which was completed while my sister visited us with her family.
i took some pictures of how the bird bath project progressed.
you can see how the edge pieces were put on one by one, the next picture shows how my husband made sure all the tiles were straight and the joints clean by means of a tooth pick. more importantly: you can see how ice cream is the main element of a true "brothers-in-law d.i.y. project", it just makes things go so much smoother...
..after my brother-in-law grouted it with waterproof epoxy grout, and allowing a day for everything to dry, we could finally put the finished bird bath outside and fill it with water.
and, of course, my nephew was the first little birdie to take a bath in it!
were you able to complete any long-planned-for projects lately?
or do you still have all your projects on your to-do list?
