I'm in love! This bird cage has been something that I have been dreaming about getting for awhile. Well, not this exact one. But one like it.
A vintage bird cage on a stand! So when I got this one I was in Heaven.
The lady I got it from said it belonged to her grandmother from the 1930's. It had been passed down to her mother and then about 20 years ago her mother gave it her. Now she was "sick" of it and just wanted to "get it out of the house".
I was more then happy to take it off her hands. The best part was it was only $15.00. I couldn't believe it. I've seen these at antique stores for $150 and more.
I love the base of the stand.
At first I wasn't sure where I was going to put it. I didn't know if I should keep it inside so it didn't get destroyed by the weather or not. Should I paint it white and plant flowers in?
When I walked up to my front door it dawned on me! The perfect place for the bird cage was right there! I had been wanting something with height to go in this spot.
So I put the cage there to see if it would fit. It did. I like it. Though I think I need to move the little water fountain over.
I also like the black color as it stands out against our house which is pale yellow with white trim. Plus that area is covered so the weather won't destroy it.
I don't think I'm going to plant a little garden it it either. I may get a fake bird and put a little nest in the bottom or something. I just don't want to rust the cage by putting plants in it.
What do you think? Should I paint it? Keep it black? Should I plant a garden in it? Should I move the water fountain?
