A while back I bought a chicken waterer on sale for half price.
Every thing looked ok so I just thought it was a good deal.
Well it wasn't. The water flow wouldn't work properly.
So I put it aside for months.
Well the other day I decided to repurpose it in a different way.
Here it is in its intended form.

I took it apart and used the bottom as a planter.
I filled it full of dirt and planted oregano.
I also put extra holes in the tray so I wouldn't
have standing water. 

I think it looks pretty good.
I sat it by the coop door and can just pinch off some
oregano for the group.

For the next project I used the top and punched
holes all along the bottom. I used an awl,
hammer and a brick for support.

I had a lot of beads and such left over from
when I made my wine bottle chimes.
Someone photo bombed this picture:)

So I just started stringing them up
all along the bottom.

Here's a close up.

And of course I hung it on the chicken coop.

It was a fun project and I was able to reuse a useless waterer.
Hope you found some inspiration in it.

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith;
be men of courage; be strong.

  2. Reusing something is how I love to get rid of things that just didn't work for its intended purpose. I just wish that my creative juices would flow better when I needed them to.

  3. What a great upcycle! And you're right -- where else would you hang it but on the chicken house lol? Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen | Our Hopeful Home

  6. This is great! I'd used the bottom for a painter but was flummoxed with what to do with the top--now I KNOW what I am doing! Love it.

  7. How cute-that was an exellent idea for what was a broken waterer.

  8. Hello Sweet Lyn, I'm just writing this to let you know that you are missed and I know that I am not the only one. Your sweet blog is always so inspiring. I hope that your being away isn't because of any sad news, but instead because you're having so much fun living life, that there is no time to blog :) Bravo!
