Shreveport artist turns junk into whimsical birdhouses

Brian Carlisle holds one of his birdhouse creations at Timeline Antiques in Shreveport.

Shreveport designer Brian Carlisle looks forward to trash pick-up day and the unusual discarded treasures he might find along the side of the road. He retrofits found objects and turns them into birdhouses, bird feeders and furniture through his hobby/side business at gadgetsponge.com.
