Bird Cage Hanging LampDecember 11th, 2011 in member junk
I love making lamps from birdcages. Even though this one is standing in this store display, it is also hanging from the chain above. I like to use either brown or clear lamp cord which can be found in a sort of amber/gold color. Then I like to rust the chain so it isn't shiny. You have to find a couple of old light fixture parts or something rustic to "sandwich" the cage and attach the light fixture. I rusted those parts as well. Then I like to use a porcelain lamp housing for a real vintage look. I finish it off with a beautiful Edison style bulb.
