Jesyka D’Itri Marés took a birdcage that was decoration at her wedding and made it into a chandelier. Clever! It might look good lined with something semi-transparent, like rice paper, that would diffuse the light of the bare bulb.

    If you put rice paper on there, then the bird couldn’t look out and might feel claustrophobic.

    Does anyone know where to find decent priced birdcages like in the pic? I’m having no luck.

    I just want one for decor, thats why I’m shying away from an actual aviary($200!!) I would appreciate any advice, thx.
