Can you believe September is here already? The heat and humidity is still here in Eastern NC and I am looking forward to cooler days. Summer seems to last forever in the South. I am anxious to have more time to paint in my garage/studio when it cools down a bit. I am chomping’ at the bit to get started on some painting projects. Today I thought I would try to give you a little decorating inspiration with Bird Cages.
Decorating with bird cages is hot right now. Incorporating vintage, new or upcycled bird cages into your decor can add a touch of whimsy to a room. I bought this decorative bird cage in Michael’s years ago. It was once a dark green but I lightened it up with some white spray paint and it has distressed over the years on its own. It has been displayed in different ways and in different rooms throughout my homes since then. Right now this bird cage sits at the base of my fireplace filled with candles and silk hydrangeas, perfect for a summer look.
These two little bird cages came from the clearance bin at Michael’s last year. Although they were cute in yellow and purple….
I ended up giving them a quick coat of pink spray paint for a “shabby chic cottage” look.
Decorating with bird cages can be as simple as hanging them on the wall for added interest like this set of two decorative bird cages I purchased at Through The Country Door last year. They look great displayed on the wall in my living room. They frame a bird inspired canvas print.
You can keep it simple and hang your bird cages empty, add some decorative candles or create a little vignette inside each one like I did here.

On Halloween I got a little festive and gave each bird cage a more suitable “spooky” look with some black crows, a glittered skull and a framed, creepy old photo.
I love this aqua blue wooden bird cage. I picked it up at a local thrift shop, painted it aqua blue and sold it to a client. I kind of wish I kept it!
Adding a decorative bird cage can really complete the look and feel of a fun, Bird Inspired mantle or table vignette. Can you tell I have a bit of a bird theme going on in my living room?
This old beat up vintage bird cage was a thrift store find.
I brought it back to life with a coat of cottage green paint with a little distressing. This Vintage Bird Cage went from pretty Shabby, to Chic. Don’t you think? Although it isn’t suitable for a feathered friend anymore, it would look really nice filled with candles or silk flowers.
Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a great day!
