|We built the coop from scratch with 2x4's and reclaimed wood from an old fence|
|John's quite clever and talented at this. He had the whole thing designed in his head. Although its taking longer than he had thought it would.|
|Its coming along quite nicely!!|
|So as of today.... This is as far as we have gotten. |
We are 95% complete. IF we could just find 1 more day of no interruptions we could get the %$^& thing finished :) Life gets in the way of all the fun sometimes. We have their screened lanai up but not completely screened yet. We have to finish the roosting bars,the little ramps to get inside coop, finish screening and then put a 18" barrier underground so that the other critters cant get in and eat the chickens. When thats done we can go get the little buggers and make them work for their supper, cause I want eggs.!!!! All this fuss so I can get fresh eggs. But I think it will be worth it.
Next after this I think I will start raising RABBITS!!!!!

|Same pot painted blue with an antique finish.|
This trunk is over 40 years old. It was a regular blue color with no legs. I painted it to look like wood with a leopard skin thrown over it. I did this 15 years ago and it still looks great today. As a matter of fact I'm still using it for storage.
|I found an old night table at a consignment shop. It was too short for our bedroom and, of course, I didnt like the color. So I added legs made out of PVC pipe and............|
|......Painted it to fit my decor in our bedroom. |
It looks great and is still functioning quite nicely.
Remember......Anything can be painted!!!!
If you have something you'd like painted email me for either instructions on DIY
