This little table idea was kind of a 'need'...

I LOVE my birds and squirrels.  They bring me so much joy and  I needed a place to set the many ceramics, feeders, and seashell keepers I have, in a place where I could enjoy them from the living room every morning over coffee.  I have hanging feeders, but they aren't particularly fair to the squirrels, soooo....

We have a tiny, narrow front porch and an awkward window height from the outside.  These things necessitated my building my own table for the space. 

This project involved a single piece of wood that was 2'X6', two cans of spray paint, some glass marbles and candle base I had laying around, and two cheapo plant iron plant stands I picked up for $6.

I sprayed the entire piece of wood red.  Then I taped off a 3"border, and I sprayed it orange.  I lay the wood atop the plant stands, marked for holes, then drilled three holes per side that I used to run wire through (in a button 'X' pattern) to secure the wood/table top to the stands. 

All that was left to do was secure the marbles using industrial, weather-proof glue and set everything up...viola!  My birds and squirrels are very happy...which makes my mornings something extra special  :)
