Also, how did you hang your small antique bottles on the edges of a curtain? Thank you Posted: 11:30 pm on March 11th

lovecrafting writes: I knew I could depend on you all to come up with some great ideas. Now night light? or easter display? Faux bird cage I think maybe since I collect birds! Thank you all so much for your help. Posted: 10:37 pm on January 24th
SweetMelissa writes: What a fun and unique find! Paint and shabby it the color of your choice. Then, find a cute little lamp to set inside for a nightlight effect. The cord can just drape out the back...Wa wiring needed. For a little more of a "dressed up" look, hang some dangly crystals around the top or base with cuphooks or upholstry tacks. Enjoy!

Paint it! Yellow, then White, then shabby it! Posted: 11:18 am on January 24th

kopykatkim writes: You could remove the top part and use the bottom as a bird bath. Just adhere an old saucer, pan, bowl anything in the form of a bowl would work. Or cut out the spindles and turn the top upside down to use as your bird bath, of course you would have to line it with something amazing but I'm sure you could come up with something, maybe mosiac? Just a thought.

texasjunkermom writes: lovecrafting had a good, but since you are in a rental, find somewhere for it to go indoors. Then when you move, put everything back like it was originally. Posted: 2:11 pm on January 23rd
lovecrafting writes: Great idea but unfortunately I live in a rental. Posted: 1:38 pm on January 23rd
Adri09 writes: Paint it a distressed white or some other vintage color of your preference. Turn it into a lamp by wiring it starting from the base and hang it outside upsidedown as a porch lamp. Posted: 11:59 am on January 23rd
lovecrafting writes: It is about 24 inches tall and about 18-20 inches around.Tha wood is in good shape except for inside of the "cage" it looks like something has been removed and the wood is chipped up. Posted: 11:11 am on January 23rd
texasjunkermom writes: How tall is it, how big around? It's beautiful wood, but painted might be good too. Posted: 10:54 am on January 23rd
