A couple of months back while walking through a local craft store, my wife pointed out a Butter-Fly House and commented that “we should own one”. Being a true lumberjock, one look at the price-tag and I replied, “I’ll build you one”. As most of you here know, when you make a statement of this nature, it will almost always come back to haunt you.
This project Butter-Fly House is made of left over material from around the shop and home. My dear wife brought home the old milk jug a few years back and has been in various corners of the shed ever since. The main structure is made of some MDF that has been in the shop looking for a place to be useful. The only material purchased was some white spray paint and a couple of fake butterflies at the dollar store.
As this project has been made of recycled material, I figured it was a good candidate for this summers “One Man’s Junk” challenge.
This project has made the wife happy, so of course I am now happy. After all, a happy wife is a happy life; Right? Now if the thing would just attract some butter-flies …….
