Birdhouse Trellis (Fence) of Many Colors

I just love birdhouses and after seeing a couple of the fences I fell in love with the idea.
So now it was my turn to give it a try. With the help of my husband this is what we came up with! I hope you like it.
This is the finished product.
Used 1 x 4 x 6 ft dog eared fence boards which we had already (can use pallets). We cut them in half making it about 3 ft high and painted then as to the colors we already had. They soon become different heights. We had lots of extra fence pieces around which we used to make the roof tops. If you noticed they were stained and placed at different shapes and sizes.
Now that they have the roof tops on and different heights, also drilled the little holes and placed the little perch posts on. Now its time to just connect them together at width you want. We used two 3 ft boards one at the bottom and one just below the holes. Bingo! Basically its done.
Different roofs.

Final picture includes birdhouse's & bench.

      Don't think they're meant to be "lived in". Just to be "cute"! And that they are!!
