Birdcage Chandelier – Elegant decoration for the home does not have to cost a fortune. In many cases, a new piece of decoration, such as a lamp or chandelier, can be assembled using elements you already own. For example, a vintage birdcage that could be occupying space in your attic can be easily reused as a chandelier. This project takes little time and the planning to put into practice and the results are both attractive and functional.

Select a location for the vintage birdcage spider, ideally a place where there is already a basic lighting device installed. Measure the length and width of the bottom of the bird cage with a tape measure or ruler to determine the center and make a pencil mark. Screw four L-brackets to the bottom of the bird cage, one at each corner. Position the brackets so that the vertical side of each bracket. Remove the bulb from the wall socket.

Keep the birdcage in its place upside down against the ceiling, or have someone hold it for you, then secure the L-brackets to the roof by screwing them into place. Open the door of the birdcage and put your hand through the opening to screw the bulb. Decorate the inside or outside of the bird cage as you wish, draping artificial ivy over the outside of the cage or suspending the artificial birds inside. Turn on the light and admire its chandelier bird cage vintage.
