pretty bird cage made prettier!

i just bought this fabulous little bird cage for $25 at homesense.  i loved the antique look and how banged up it appeared.  seriously looked like i found it at some parisian market in france!  however the colors were a little grungy, so i thought i'd soften it - just a tad!

here's what it looked like:
so pretty, just not quite me,

used a frenchy  blue color i had to dry brush it, intentionally doing a bad job with the painting!

dry brush = dip the brush in the paint and then tap almost all of it off on something other than what you intend to paint

added some pillar candles

and done!  charming i think!
