Bird Cage Redo

I found this bird cage at Ross for about 7 buckaroos a few years ago.  I was looking for one to use for our wedding to put all of the cards in.  I wanted it to be white but the one I bought was a weird green and gold combo (not sure who thought that was a good idea).  I used some white spray paint that I already had and, voila:

A nice card holder for our wedding!

Now the bird cage is in our house and was sitting on our wine tower but it did not "pop" like I wanted it to.  It seemed to blend in with the color on our walls a little too much, sooooo......I bought some 96 cent black spray paint from Wally World and then added some dark gray textured spray paint I already had to make it look a little rustic and...

Sorry for the shadows!  The lighting is not the best in that corner.  Now I'm just keeping my eye out for some cute little birdies to put with it.  They seem to be all the rage these days.  I'll keep you updated on what I find!


  1. i have a birdcage that i am using for cards for my wedding as well! i haven't decorated it yet, but i love the idea. it is a black/pewter color now, so i guess i should spray paint it white, but i love the darker color too.
