Adding a faucet and handle and decorations to the birdhouse.I saw this birdhouse made with an old water faucet. Since I had some old plumbing supplies that belonged to my grandpa, I came up with this craft decor using a water faucet and a handle. The "birdhouse" was something I found at a thrift store.


Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1


  • paint
  • paint brush
  • crackle paint
  • stain
  • paper towel
  • old faucet
  • old faucet handle
  • embellishments


  1. First, I painted two coats of paint on the birdhouse after a hole was drilled on the top and side to fit the faucet and faucet handle. Let dry between coats. Apply crackle paint to painted surface and let dry 2 to 4 hours.
  2. A decorative wooden piece.
    Painting the birdhouse white.

  3. Using paper towel, dip into stain and apply to crackle paint. Wipe off excess. This gives is an old distressed look.
  4. Aging the birdhouse using stain.
  5. Add fixtures and embellishments.

Lovely! Was the entrance hole the perfect size for the tap or did you have to enlarge it?
