Wrap chicken wire around the ribs of a lampshade, add some twigs and birdies and voila! A DIY birdcage chandelier!

And here’s the $15 chandelier I created to replace the tacky track lighting. I took a paper lighting fixture from Ikea and ripped off the paper to leave the exposed wire ribs. Then I wrapped it all with chicken wire from Lowe’s, added some branches and a few craft store birds from Michael’s craft store. I chose interesting bulbs (since it’s exposed) and voila! Birdcage chandelier. It was inspired by a $$$ version I saw in an antique store and thought… “I could make that.”

I can imagine doing something cool with photos + vintage industrial metal grating (not a memo board, but maybe clips+photos?)
Could do this with crates. They sell them at Joann's and we could paint them fun colors. Perfect displays.

Why couldn't I have fallen in love with the easy kind of piecing, where everything is the same size and shape? No, I have to adore the jigsaw puzzle kind. Beautiful. Dottie Angel

Repurpose and upcycle a vintage coat rack. Use it to display a vintage linen collection. I would paint it pink, white or green. Hang jewelry???
