Back in the fall someone graciously sent me a gift certificate to Joss and Main. I went over found these bird cages and loved their shape.
Did not love the color when they arrived.
Outside to the paint screens both went.
A quick spray of Rust-Oleum Cinnamon.
It is great for faking rust!
A light overspray of Ivory Silk.
At this point I saw just where I could stick all those lights!
Yes, a giant light bulb appeared over my head.
Just like in the cartoons.
The birdcages looked rusty and crusty and primitive to match the stuff in the den.
Gathered a few strands of lights and crammed them into the cages.
And then there was light!
The cages were hung by chain from a hook in the ceiling.
Yes, I see the cord. It is not noticeable in real life.
Okay, this is the first part of three posts about my deconstructed Christmas. It is hard to capture the true nature of the beast, but I am trying.
