I was lucky to be given a Bunnings Kids DIY birdhouse
I thought it would be fun to make it up but first sorry Bunnings MDF won’t stand being outside for very long. be interesting to see how good paint can extend this.
two sides 3 mm mdf, a top and bottom 3mm mdf, and front and back panels 9mm and a perch.
to increase lifetime I painted them with British Paints 4in1 tinted to TU4 Which makes it covers bright strong colour and high contrast (imagine a black and white chequerboard)
gave the panels a good coat and assembled using Selleys exterior PVA and eight brads glued the perch in and overnight ended up a strong little box
Will need to use some sealant Selleys no more gaps exterior, or silicone, as the rebates the side fit into leaves itself open to water.
Off to BUNNINGS in the weekend for top coat paint
No clear coat this time just the tape onto the red a coat of red over the tape and then the green x2. I probably should have spent more time cutting the circle better as you can pick my knife lines very happy great tape
