Birdcage: Check!

Remember this beauty?

before birdcage
I picked her up in Goodwill back in August, and after removing the “bow” and the “moss” she’s actually looked pretty decent “as is” in our living room.

But then, in my quest for nursery ideas and inspiration, I stumbled across this photo:

birdcage inspiration
(Side note, I love the blog I stole it from.)

So, I polled you readers on what color I should paint my Goodwill birdcage, and the votes were pretty well split between green, pink, and orange.

But, I just couldn’t get past how much I loved the inspiration picture, so……

I went with a turquoise-y, aqua-y blue:

And heaven help me, I can NOT get the lighting in Baby Girl’s room to cooperate for decent photos, but……I wanted to at least show you that I’ve gotten this one task (sorta) completed.  I have intentions of making birds to hang in the birdcage, but I haven’t decided if I want to tackle felt, follow the original paper instructions, or bribe someone else to do them for me.

Anybody want to volunteer?  I’d even provide the fabric……

1st - love what you did with the photo frame.

2nd - I'd do paper for you, but I couldn't tackle felt. For some reason, the two of us don't get with most other fabrics. BAH!

Looks good, Mon!

I know there are some great applique people on Etsy who would probably use your fabric and not charge that much. I LOVE the color you chose for the birdcage. One of my favorite colors ever.
