Re-purposed Bird Cage

Over the weekend I picked up a bird cage at a estate sale with plans to re-purpose it.  I just didn't care for the galvanized green/bronze colors...

Honestly, I didn't do much with it except clean it up and then paint it with one coat of white paint using the dry brush method.  I liked the way it looked and didn't even distress it any further....

I think it would be cute filled with a string of lights, used for a wedding centerpiece or to hold wedding cards, or fill it with vintage books or dishes.  What would you use it for?


  1. Looks Great!! I like the idea with the lights.....and maybe some shells?? :D

  2. Looks great! I like Shelllady's suggestion. Could you use this for Tony? maybe add a ribbon?

  3. Maybe add a pot of Ivy, or Baby Tears. Very cute cage. I like it painted much better.

    1. I liked it better painted also. Ivy growing up around the bars would look pretty.

  4. All these neat transformations are sure wrecking havoc with my intentions to purge and travel lighter! :)

  5. Kim, it looks so much better white! It is always a wonder how much things change with a coat of paint. Good job!

  6. I love it! I would hang it on my side porch with a faux little birdie in it!

  7. Tweety? ;)
    It would be beautiful with trailing plants.

  8. I see a cherub or Madonna sitting in there.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave a message because I love to hear from you!
