Being out and about with the hot sun also meant a good spray painting opportunity. Got the bird bath painted and then assembled it with a long threaded rod, nuts and washers. I drilled holes through the bowl and the stand with a tile bit and since both pieces are terracotta, it was pretty easy drilling. I learned how to use a tool for measuring the center of a circle, since I wanted to be accurate when drilling the hole.
In case you didn't know one existed, it does! There is a little edge that hooks onto the side of your circle (or the bottom of your bird bath bowl) and you draw a straight lines and then move it a little. Eventually where all the lines meet in the center is where you will want to drill! Rock on! Was totally pumped to learn this trick!
Totally dig that I left the terracotta color in the center of the bowl. It was already glazed so I think it will work quite well as a bird bath. Used a little bit of copper spray paint on the rest of the bird bath so it will match when I was painting it. Now to just get more flowers up and figure out where it's going!
Waving at Miss Sian who appears to be having a bit of spring in her neck of the world too based on the pretty daffodil she used in her photos!
