Recycled GOODS!!!

I love to take regular household items and turn them into something for my birds. I am soooo happy with the turn out on this one. Not completely done yet but have to share what i have so far.
This was one of those bathroom towel hangers bought it a ka-zillion years ago at Spiegel. With a glass shelf on to display trinkets in the bathroom.

That looks so awesome! I gotta get creative for my birds. My crocheting business takes so much time though when I am not home schooling the kiddos, that I don't have much time, but I think I am going to make time just to work on projects for the birds.

I agree, it's definitely better than throwing it away.

Thank you all. I went and measured the circle and its 25 inches wide, so it really is big. Will make some final changes today. I always watch the birds play on it and then afterward one can re-do some stuff. Of course could not touch it yesterday, once you hang it up forget it. I had macaws grabbing my hair and trying to bite my hands. They are awful these rotten birds of mine,lol
