Here's just one project I worked on while I was gone. I picked up this wood bird cage at a thrift store for $4! Squeeee! I'm sure no one saw the potential in this baby!
Cell phone pic -- I was too excited to get a good pic!
This thing had been painted multiple times, and quite a few coats stuck together on the wires. I sanded it and used a wire brush to remove the big chunks. Then I primed and painted. That took forever to get both sides of the wires and the inside. Just when I thought I was done, I'd pick it up and find more white.
After I got it all black, I realized it needed something. I used fishing line to attach my Amy Butler chickadees die cuts inside and lined the bottom with coordinating Amy Butler paper.
This is it now! I am absolutely in love. I hung it in my foyer, so it's the first thing you see when you walk in. Oddly, no one seems to be as in love with it as I am. They just aren't as cool as me, I guess.
