Just got a concrete birdbath from a friends son. The son works at a concrete
place that makes steps, curb stops, etc. He told me they had a large birdbath
and I could get one for 40 bux. Since even the little ones around here are
nearly that much I told him yeah and gave him the money. He delivered it this
afternoon. Took 4 of us just to get the base out of his truck, figured the base
weighs about 150 lbs. It is 14 inches in diameter at the base tapering to 10
inches at the top and has a fluted design. The bowl is 32 inches across just at
the water line and another 4 inches past that. I do believe I got my moneys
worth out of this thing.

Anyone know of a non-toxic concrete paint that I can use to coat the bath part?
