pale pink birdcage

this sweet birdy cage was my 1st find at the markets yesterday.
bird cages are popping up everywhere in this house.
she wasn't quite as pretty as this when i found her.
for some reason the previous owner had umm wasted alot
of time painting her a ghastly shade of purple.
not being able to leave her behind just because of the yucky colour,
i decided it couldn't be too hard to paint her up right?
wrong!
it was a worse job than 1st thought!!
took me ages shoving the brush into every nook and corner.
totally worth it though :)

before....
yep, beyond hideous!!
i've been painting all weekend. time for a break.
i'm off to IKEA to check out Christmas decorations,
and to try and buy myself a new mirror for our walk in robe.
back soon :) Kate x

  1. LOL! I just painted a mirror (frame) that was that same horrid hue on the weekend...must have been some gross purple phase that we missed, huh? Your birdcage looks very cool. Have a good time at Ikea :)

  2. Hi Kate
    I have exactly the same birdcage. The original colour was a cream/white with crackle finish. I also love your soft pink finish. As for the purple ...ummmm?
    You're very brave to tackle IKEA on a weekend. I only ever go during the week when it's a little quieter.
    Cheers Kylie
