Re-purpose Dove Aviary to My Play Room

1 Material
5 Days
I used to raise doves but throughout the years the doves have passed away in which I now have a empty cage. I decided to make use out of this aviary and make it my own outdoor craft room. A place where I can do outdoor crafts. Once I pressured washed the inside I revamped the whole inside with items I had already.
I put in wood chips on the floor and a bigger door. I nailed up paneling, hung valances, framed in one window, and now I am adding some of my own art decor.
I made my own handle for the door with a glass coffee pot top and a cool metal handle I found.
I painted the door inside and out.
How pretty?
I got these valances half off $5.99. They worked perfectly!

My neighbors next to my play room are my pet ducks and turkey. This is their field and I can look into it from my windows,
Follow the walkway to the creek.
It's coming along with very little money spent.

      It makes it more of a challenge to see what I can come up with. My door knob is a glass coffee pot top and a wine stopper. lol It works perfect.
