Projects, projects, projects

So, I've been wanting to share some furniture/decor redos that have kept me busy lately. I went on a semi-massive redecorating frenzy when I found out we wouldn't be moving :( I was honestly pretty upset not to be moving out of our townhouse (it's not my favorite) but after some prayer and maybe a few tears I decided to my creativity to work and give the place some much needed decorating updates. It's been challenging as I can paint or permanately change any fixtures or feature of the place but I've done what I can :)

I can't see to find the cable that goes with my camera to let me upload pictures but I'll try and make do with the phone pictures that I do have. Sorry for the poor quality. We will start with a SUPER SIMPLE decor project:

Pottery Barn-esque Bird Cage Candle Holder

If you've been to Pottery Barn lately you know that Bird Cage decor is in. I was able to find this little pretty at our Kansas City DAV for just $1

I thought that this would fit perfectly over a short pillar candle I already had at home but wanted some sort of a base for the candle to sit on as well. I found a cheap, white saucer at the DAV for just $. 49.

At home, I simply gave the bird cage a coat of primer followed by a coat of white spray paint. Once that dried, I placed my pillar candle on underside of the saucer and glued the up-side-down saucer to the base of the bird cage. And here you have the finished project (it shows the saucer right side up but I changed it before gluing)
Hope you enjoy it! I'll be posting more projects soon :)
