Thrift store makeover

I got this bird cage at a local thrift shop about a year ago and it's been sitting high on a shelf in my kitchen since then...waiting for something different to happen.

Carrie's new house {that she will be moving into this coming weekend!} will be done in teal blues with yellow accents. So for her birthday Doug and I re-vamped it for her. He used paint, I used buttons...


I hung a little bird in it for the photo, but will leave it up to Carrie for further embellishing.

I just love the bright yellow color!
And she likes it too.

:o)

Love it! I think this is definitely going to be Carrie's "year"! A new home, 22 years old, and a cute little birdie in a pretty cage. Hope it is the best year yet!
Have a great week!
