Spray Paint Inexpensive Garden Birdbath

I have been wanting a birdbath for quite a while and was not willing to pay the $50 that the stores wanted; so, I bought a cheap $10 plastic birdbath and spray painted it with Krylon Plastic paint. Looks just like one of those expensive ones for approximately $15.

The directions for my plastic birdbath suggest weighting the base with sand, which is a good idea, but weighting it with water is better and cheaper! If you live in colder climes, you can just tip the base over, use the water for your plants, and store your birdbath for the winter

I weighted mine with gravel, anything dry and heavy should be ok.
