Bird Cage Lighting

This isn't really complicated or transforming - just something cool that came to me. I got this old, rusting, bird cage at a thrift store while on vacation at the beach. I had it for about a month just sitting on top of an armoir in my room hoping an idea would come to me to do it justice. I already had the little chandelier and was wondering what I was going to do with it. One day the idea just hit me, and I removed the top swinging bird perch and replaced it with the little chandelier. Now I have a neat, mellow light to have on in my room while all the other lights are out. :)
