Birdcage Lamp

I love interesting and unique lamps so when I came across this lamp base I immediately started searching for a unique lamp shade for it.  The lamp base was more brass colored and I used some teal rub-n-buff to age and distress it.  The bird  cage I found already looked old and I thought they were a match made in bird lamp heaven.  I added some wood stained vellum to filter the light from the bulb.  After I took pictures I had an after thought and added a bird nest with speckled eggs (pic coming soon)
