I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and shopped and ate to your hearts content!
Ok – I saw the Restoration Hardware versions of birdcage chandies and OH! how I love them!! But way outta my price range!!! I wondered how I could create something similar. Hmmm, then I remembered I had two birdcages, a small bamboo one and a large brass one on a stand. At first I thought I’d just add some Christmas white lights inside the cages…but I really loved the chandelier on the inside. What to do, what to do…and I didn’t want to pay $200 for a mini-chandy - so I thought I’d just run down to Lowe’s and see what they had to choose from. SCORE!!! They had one on clearance because someone had returned it…$99 marked down to $32! YAY! Now I could try creating one of my own…
Here’s Restoration Hardware’s versions:
And here’s mine…not as sparkly and glamorous, but it’ll work for this southern girl! And the best part is it cost less than $75!! The vintage brass birdcage was a find from an estate sale last summer - $40; the Lowe’s clearance chandy - $32!! I still have to wire it to fit an outlet, but I think you can picture it. What do you think?!
Thanks for checking out my blog! Hope you enjoyed…
