"Birdcage" Makeover

Last week, I spent a couple of hours scouring garage sales.  I came home all excited, but as you can see, it doesn't take much to delight me:



After John brought out the wire cutters and we removed yards of chicken wire, this is what we found:


Once stripped of the chicken wire, I realized that the "birdcage" is actually two repurposed [this is the new catch-phrase, right?] store display baskets stacked together. After some cleaning, spray painting, and decorating, this is what we have:






What do you think?  Could we possibly use this as part of wedding reception decor?

Thankful thought:  Thanks for spray paint and possibilities.
