Before and After : Bird Cage Shelf

 I would love to say I found this great "vintage look" bird cage shelf at a thrift store or estate sale.  But the truth is I found it at a Ross store.  But I just knew when I saw it,  I had to have it.  
So much potential.

 A little spray paint, foam board, fabric......

....... a couple of vintage book pages, 
fancy ribbon from the Paper Crown
and spindles wrapped in chenille stems. 

I was so excited to hang it in my
studio and it fit perfectly under
a wall sconce.  It now makes a wonderful open shelf for my bottles of glitter.

Okay I'm not afraid to admit it ....
I LOVE GLITTER....So much glitter.
I even bought a shelf....yes just for my glitter.
And I haven't even begun to fill it with all the bottles.
