Well, it is finally beginning to feel like Christmas. The tree is up and the house is decorated.
Later in the week I am having an outdoor plug installed for the lights outside. Then my decorating will be finished. I have always had to run and extension cord around the house in past years. It will be so good to have a plug at the front of the house for seasonal decorating.
This is the piece of a birdcage I bought a few weeks ago at the vintage market.
I used a dry brush technique and lightly painted the cage white leaving some of the rusty finish showing through. Next I added some small icicle trim to the top edge and a string of battery operated white lights.
I placed it on top on my vintage trunk and used it as a surround for my Christmas tree. It helps keep my kitty off the tree, too.
This year's theme for the tree is pink and gold with French accents. It is only a 4 foot tree but makes a big look atop the trunk and nearly reaches the ceiling.
I made all the French accent pieces like the crown on top and the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe.
I have so many plans for this birdcage throughout the year. Each season I plan to change it's look.
