We had this old satilite dish that was of no use anymore, the post rusty, the site ugly...sooooo, I wire brushed the rust off the post, took out 2 of the bolts holding the dish, tipped the dish as far as it would go on the swivel it has to lean back and then bent it slighly to become flat for a bird bath. I gave it a paint job(not the dish itself) and planted a creeping vine at the base. The birds love it! And it is not an unused yard eyesore anymore! Hooray!
