I looked through the thrift store and what did I see? A $2 bird cage starring back at me.
It needed a little TLC, aka, me blowing the dust off and adding a couple coats of heirloom white. Here it is drying after the first batch (my paint ran out) with a couple of other projects in the works.
Another coat of paint did the trick.
Wondering what in the heck is inside? That would be the little love birds from my Valentine display along with a whole bundle of paper, burlap and fabric scraps from last year's "no bunny loves me like ewe do" banner also seen in my "11 Ways to Decorate Plastic Easter Eggs". Keep your scraps!
Isn't my apricot tree beautiful this time of year?! I love the bird cage in the tree, but don't want it to blow off and die over night so it will be hanging out on a shelf inside. Also, I am tempted to paint the birds blue so they stand out more.
Total cost: $5.50
$2 bird cage
$3.50 spray paint
