Week 2~Diamonds In The Rough, Birdhouses In The Making

In my Diamonds In The Rough! weekly features, I show you garage sale finds of the week and what I am doing with these treasures.  What I forgot to share with you are two new porch posts that I got for $5 each!

This is one that I finished a couple of years ago...so now I will have two more to put out in the garden with different birdhouses on them! Here are the two porch posts before picture...
They not only look good, but the birds love to make homes in them! I will show you when I get these done. I purchased another round birdhouse on eBay that will be in this week and I will use the birdhouse that was a quarter in this post HERE, for the other porch post top.
NOTE: You should be able to click on most of the pictures to enlarge to see further details.
