Birdcages

If you follow my blog, you know I love decorating with birds, nests, birdcages, and bird paraphenalia in general.  Well, I keep seeing birdcages everywhere!    Saw this one in a storefront in Green Hills Mall. 2010 01 14 13.40.35 Birdcages



These birdcage wall decals take the place of artwork above this fabulous black upholstered sofa.

These hanging light fixtures are heavily influenced by the birdcage trend – especially with the bird-embossed candles inside them. bird cage light via morewaystowastetime blogspot Birdcages

I snapped a photo of these birdcages I saw in an antique shop in London.  These particular ones  had an Asian flair.  2010 02 15 11.17.16 Birdcages



This vintage birdcage is a treasure I scored at my neighbor’s yard sale a few years ago.  It inspired a whole dinner theme, which I blogged about here.

DSC 3218 Birdcages I recently bought this large birdcage at a consignment store for a client.  We’ve been working on a “Flights of Fancy” themed bedroom for her young daughter, and I thought we could create a hanging light fixture out of this.  It looked pretty shabby chic before, in a worn butter yellow color.  It ended up being too large for the intended purpose, so I decided to keep it for myself – it’s hard to find decorative birdcages this large anymore!  Anyway, I painted it with Ralph Lauren’s Highgate from their Regency Metallics line (for another Regency Metallics project, look here).   I love how much bolder and more fun it is now.

  1. I’m into birds now too…

  2. Love the London ones with the Asian flair and the decals would be a great idea for decorating a doom room and your dinner looked lovely!

  3. I don’t live in your area, but I would love to purchase some of the black metal birdcages that you used. The picture of the ones I like has three birdcages each with a candle with a picture of a birds on it. Please send me this info.
    Thanks
