First thing that needed to be done was to clean it up, no more dust and spider webs for this cage!
2-Chose the right spray paint for the type of surface you are painting
3-Let each coat dry before spraying another one (patience is not my virtue)
4-Remember, its just paint so if you don't like it you can repaint it!
Alright, after a couple coats of white Krylon satin spray paint..it was ready for a little light distressing. I didn't want it to look "too new" so I took some steal wool to it in certain places to add character.
The idea I had in my mind was to hang a chandelier from the cage. I was searching online to try & find a chandelier that would fit & be the right style but was not having any luck. Until a few weeks ago I was shopping at one of my favorite stores, Hobby Lobby and ran ac crossed this- I knew it was PERFECT and I bought it right away!
This is my favorite thing in my home. Every time I look at the soft warm light this bird cage & the fabulous story of my great grandmother "the bird whisperer"
Do you have a family heirloom you display in your home-or maybe something in grandma's garage you could turn into something usable and lovable in your home? Please share with me if you do!
P.S. I need to buy some twist ties to hold back the chord out of sight..:)
Thanks for coming! Audrey "The HassleFreeChick"
