My ex made and sold birdhouses out of old picket fencing. He just cut it, didn't do anything else to it (didn't paint, etc). He would use old (other kind)wood and make a box frame and then add the pickets on top of that (like paneling to a wall). Since they were rustic looking and we lived in Texas, he made them "western". Painted "Saloon" "Country Church", etc. on them. He added bits of metal, etc. to make windows, etc. He picked up the wood free in alleys, etc and most of the supplies also. They sold well, he got $50 to $100 each for them and even had a bit of a following for a while (word of mouth).
