Birdcage Light


My oldest daughter wanted to make a hanging light from an old birdcage.  I don't know how she came up with the idea, but I like it.  We found an old birdcage at an antique store.  She covered the sides with broadcloth, then picked up the chain, socket, etc. from the home improvement store.  I should have thought to take photos throughout the process, but basically what she did was attach the light socket with wire to the birdcage.  She used a CFL bulb, which stays very cool, so it shouldn't be a fire hazard.

Voila!  She definitely has a one-of-a-kind light for her apartment this fall.
