I love birdcages and I've always wanted a BIG birdcage. It was over a year ago when I wrote about running through the flea market looking for a birdcage I had seen there the previous month. I was going to pay $100 for it! What was I thinking! Anyway, that birdcage was very similar to this one I found at a thrift store recently.
I was so excited when I saw this! I lugged it up to the cash register and my mind was swirling with ideas of what I could turn it into! I ended up painting it white (of course) and then antiquing it with some rust color Rub N Buff paint. I added some silk hydrangeas, roses, ribbons and a little dove on top.
You won't believe what I paid for this...only $9.99! What a deal!
I thought this would be the perfect cage for a canary so I went to the pet store and bought one. Beau would not stop barking and the bird kept sticking half his body out trying to escape. It was a stressful 24 hours. I ended up taking the canary back. Luckily they refunded my money and now it will be used for decorative purposes only.
