Birdcage Makeover

Pin It Now!



Remember this birdcage I bought at a thrift store back in January? It was a little too bright green for me so I painted the whole thing white but I still didn't like it. I put some green and blue Rub N Buff on it and I like it better now. I also bought a metal planter which I painted the same colors and put it under the birdcage upside down so it looks like it has a pedestal. I like it much better now.

I put it in my bedroom. The mirror behind it was brown and now it's white. If you look through the mirror you see more mirrors on the other side. I'm working on that now...they are mirrored closet doors and I hate them. I just bought some lace curtain panels on Ebay to cover them up so my room doesn't look like a crazy fun house with mirrors everywhere. When I roll out of bed every morning I see myself in those closet doors....I HATE THAT!

Wow you've been busy. I guess I was last here on Friday! The lampshade is too cute - I love it.
About your daughter, you're not raising a food snob, just someone that appreciates healthy food that has taste. I think it's great that you make food from scratch, so few people do these days. I'm convinced that some kids don't even know what a real potato looks like!

I like the pillow too. I don't know, three weeks seems like a long time and she should at least contact you to say there's a delay. Does she have good feedback?

That looks beautiful! I have a bird cage the same but a different design that my Dad gave me a few years ago and am hoping it matches the frontroom whenever I get done. It might be too light or it might be jusdt right, not sure yet. Love your pillow and that slip cover book looks good. I found a good step by step on the web that I`m going to try to follow if ever I can get the energy to start recovering everything.

I LOVE it!! If my husband let me I would have a birdcage in every room lol! Instead I have "manly" traces of birds in every room ;)
