The original use of this set of Over-sized Vintage Painted Cages ($200) from the 1960s is unknown. But, they have a cheerful, carnival quality that could brighten up many homes. The possibilities for their use is endless; I'm seeing them hung as pendant shades in a long, narrow hallway, grouped to create a large chandelier, or perhaps strung from the trees as garden party décor. But, this post isn't about me is it? I want to know how you would use them in your home. Would you give them a function? Use them as lighting? Actually use them as birdcages? Or simply use them as décor? How would you temper their color, and keep them from overwhelming the eye? Or would you paint them to match your color scheme? Tell me by commenting below!
