Free as a bird

I love finding unusual home accessories, I've been on the look-out for a Vintage Birdcage for a while. There have been quite a few I have liked but none that I loved until I found the one below and a bargain to boot at £5 (it just needed a lick of paint). Got it at the Saturday morning scrum at Rolfeys ( in Bath, he loads up with  lots of new stock on the weekend and it attracts a host of regular antique hunters. Its a great place for finding great vintage stuff.

Got the usual ribbing when I brought my find home  about filling the house with junk!
But there are so many things that you could do with a birdcage. Hang jewellery off the rails, display candles or even flowers inside.
For an interesting twist do noticeboards and mirrors with a birdcage theme.

Or turn them into a funky and individual light. Like this one from Zuzu's Petals
