Lovely little project...............

First, i found a wonderful birdcage holder a while back at a local yard sale. I put the birdcage aside, since i love to collect them. Then, i sprayed it white (who would have known?)...
I also found an old lampshade minus the shade part and attached it to the birdcage with a hook.
This is where you can be creative! I needed a way to hang my necklaces and bracelets in a way that made it easy for me to see all of them, and also made them look like art.
Final view of the whole piece. It is going to go in the "closet project" that i am currently working on:)
You can use a vintage lampshade without the shade for any number of things. I have another one, only larger that i have hanging over my desk and from it hangs bits and pieces of things that inspire me.

And an old birdcage holder, oh my the thoughts are endless on that one........................

Coolio, Kasey!! We have to have pretty "understanding" hubbies, don't we -- always finding new uses for things, dragging home old things, etc... Oh well, maybe they figure all our creative "antics" keep us out of trouble, huh? :)
Great job!
