My First Birdcage!

I finally got a birdcage and I love it! I have almost bought one several times at Hobby Lobby, but have never made the purchase for 2 reasons, one they are never on sale, and two, I never knew where I would put one.

Well I recently SCORED while roaming a furniture store and I got this huge birdcage that was marked $100 for practically nothing. It was damaged:
And missing its top finial: So I colored the spots with a little paint pen, and sat it up high so you don't even miss the finial. Here is my armoir before: And now with my birdcage: I wasn't able to put it where I had originally planned because it was HUGE, but I am happy with it on the armoir. For some more makeovers, go visit Kimm at Reinvented. It is Trash to Treasure Tuesday and there are always great things posted!
