If I had a dollar for every birdcage I’ve seen at yard sales, I’d be in Belize right now. I always note them, but never know what to do with them, which is why this project piqued my interest. See what Kathy and Karen did with a cage they found on the curbside on trash day….

After painting the cage, and removing one of the walls, they outfitted the whole thing with shelves and mounted it on a wooden base. Now it’s perched on a table and is a great catch-all for bills and mail.

Head on over their website and see more of the project, right here.

Thanks Kathy & Karen!
