Bird Cage

It's another week of "Would You Buy It" at Junker Newbie, so here is my item for this week's party.

I found the bird cages at a garage sale for $1.00 each.  I wasn't crazy about the gold, but thought with a coat or two of spray paint they could be quite cute.  So, I bought them, brought them home, gave them a coat of primer and then two coats of Krylon's Oil Rubbed Bronze.  However, now that I've painted them, I'm not to crazy about the new color either!  Too dark.  What do you think?  What about an off white?

Anyway, I'm thinking I might use them outside on the patio and put a potted flower in the large cage and a grouping of candles in the smaller one.  Any other suggestions would be welcomed!  Oh, and I can't forget...would you have bought them?

Thank you for stopping by!



  1. love these! yes, i'm thinking maybe a distressed white? (but I usually want to distress everything white!) I love the idea of a plant in one and candles in the other. Can't believe the great price.

    Thanks for linking up to my party! Oh and I also just tweeted a link to this post as well. :-)

  2. I'm so jealous!!!!! I love them. I like them dark, but if you don't, then paint them white or cream and distress them.


  3. Yes! I would have bought them. They are wonderful! I think I would like them cream and distressed as Holly suggested. I like them dark too though. Thanks for sharing! I am becoming a follower. Best, Karen

  4. Ummm...YES! They are fabulous! I think I'm with the others: I love the dark but might consider doing an off-white shabby look! Love them!

  5. love the bird cages. i just found a couple myself... love the look
