Description: There are a lot of feeders in the RainyDayGarden. While we get plenty of visitors, they were always a bit farther away than we would have liked. We have tossed around ideas of making a feeder which could be placed up close to a window. There are a few builds of such feeders floating around the Web. Some of them look like they work quite well, but they all seem a bit clunky AND more work than we were willing to put into such a project. The ones available for purchase are very nice, but can cost over $100.
IKEA’s Socker greenhouse solved all of those problems in one stroke: unique light airy look, 10-minute DIY from start to finish, $20 overall cost. All the tools needed for this project is a drill, a few screws, and some water-proof sealant.
The basic steps are:
1. Remove one of the front plastic panels 2. Drill some holes in the tray for drainage and mounting screws 3. Mount the tray on the window ledge
