We picked up a concrete birdbath last summer at an estate sale and I have been constantly trying to keep it clean. It developed some kind of rust on the bottom and I have scrubbed with baking soda and every kind of natural cleaner I had, avoiding bleach because (1) I hate bleach and try not to use it and (2) I didn't want to hurt the birds who bathe in there. Larry had this great idea to paint it! With concrete paint! So I did today!
I started with painting the bowl a real pretty blue. You can see how ugly that rust was in this picture. Yuck. I wouldn't want to take a bath in that.
Then I painted a yellow center and accent marks on the petals. We're making a flower!
Yay!! A clean and pretty birdbath!
