I was so excited when I found this fountain on Craigslist for only 50 buckaroonies. Little did I know, it would cost a LOT more to get that thing up and running. *sigh*
I’m almost too embarrassed to tell you guys how much this frugal gal spent on making it WORK, but…….. I may as well tell you so that when you are jumping up and down for finding “the steal of your life”, unless you plan to use it as a BIRDBATH, you might think twice before buying it!
Hey, using it as a birdbath might be just the thing!
(Update, this post got too long so the technical information about installing the fountain is next, part 2) STAY TUNED!
So now this post will just be some fun photos…….
One thing that I LOVE about my CL fountain find is that it was old so all the rich patina was already there…….just check out that moss and grime – ha, love it!
Having a fountain is also a fun way to attract birds to your yard.
What do you think??
Now I just need to set up the back patio,add flowers and fast forward 10 years to where they are all big and beautiful. (All the while, I need to NOT age MYSELF) hee,hee.
