Small Crystal Chandelier…

As some of you may know, I’ve been searching high and low at every flea market, garage sale and boutique for a reasonably priced small crystal chandelier to go inside of an antique bird cage.

When I first began the Den Makeover back in November of 2010. I found a couple of diamond doves for this cage

However, this corner of the den was so dark, I felt bad for the lack of light that these sweet birds had to endure.  So a friend took them off my hands and this bird cage has set empty ever since.  A search for a chandelier to fit inside the six inch door opening had begun. 

 

 

 

Last week while out in Snohomish I was in Joy Works and found this incredibly perfect chandelier.  It’s new, not vintage like I’d hoped to eventually find. Its plastic, not crystal like I’d dreamed of for inside the cage.   It was priced right for what I needed to fit in this birdcage. It even lights up the space enough so that you can see the nest I bought from “2 Bags Full”.

I’m pleased with how it brightens the corner in the Cottage Den.

Wow, Tracie, everything came together and the bird cage looks spectacular. I was looking at the bird's nests after seeing Karen Valentine's.
I might need to go back and look again. :-)

I love this idea!! I have a larger birdcage and I have a small chnady that I bought on clearance in target years ago and have not found a spot of it. So I may borrow this idea if you do not mind.....
Now I need to come up with a place to display it???

Hugs,

That looks beautiful! I have one of the nests from 2 Bags Full as well, also in a birdcage, but smaller than yours. I love how the light sits above it and you'd never know it's not vintage. I think it looks great!
