Shabby Chic Birdcage (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

  Soooooo... I had a small "house" shaped birdcage in my stash waiting for the perfect project and this was the one!  I was asked to create something special for a newly married wedding couple and thought this birdcage would be a wonderful addition for their home d├ęcor. I wanted to incorporate this project with their wedding colors (peacock) and one of their stunning wedding photos. I thought this project would be a beautiful accent to remember their wedding day for years to come!  You might find it interesting to see some peacock feathers in the background of the cage, but there is a great reason for this...the peacock feathers are from an actual hairpiece worn during the wedding, so I wanted to be sure and include it as part of the project! The beautiful photo was taken by my friend, Sharon, who owns a local photography studio, http://simplydesignstudios.com/ and was the photographer for this wedding.
   I painted the entire birdcage with an off-white chalk paint mixed with sand and then began layering a ton of flowers and product, some of which are from my stash and some of which are from Reneabouquets Etsy shop! The links to the products I used from Renea's shop will be below the photos....as well as my Youtube video, explaining this project in detail!  You can click on each individual product link if you are interested in a certain item, or to go directly to the homepage, click on the Reneabouquets link to the right on my sidebar.
