Time to make a FOUNTAIN?

Is it time to make a FOUNTAIN for the deck? I know... you thought this was a chiminea didn't you? Well, it was... until I grabbed some heavy duty industrial strength Aleene's® Platinum Bond™ 7800 All-Purpose Adhesive glue and turned it into a fountain with broken china and grout. Be sure and coat the inside of the base with rubber that you brush on, and that you pick up at the local home improvement store, and drill a hole in the chimney for your pump cord to go through.

If you look really close, you'll see a miniature tea set that I added for a touch of whimsey.

After you glue broken china all over; you let the glue dry, you grout it, and then spray with sealer... Add the pump, cover it with broken dishes, and pour in your water.

Now, you're ready to plug it in, serve up some cool drinki-poos and enjoy the soft trickle of your fabulous fountain.

That looks amazing! It puts mine to shame at the moment, although I am trying! I have just bought a diy water feature and am struggling to even out it together never mind make my own. Yours is truly unique have you done anything around the water feature like plants?
