Our master bedroom has had a bare hanging light bulb for a few years now, so I knew I wanted to attempt some DIY lighting for the space. I could never decide what I wanted to do with it. I’ve seen so many caged light fixtures and love the look of them, but didn’t want to spend much money on our bedroom lighting. So, when I saw a $7 gold birdcage at Hobby Lobby I knew that was the answer! It ended up being so easy to put together and I had all the other materials needed already on hand. So keep reading to find out how I made my own DIY cage pendant light! I was pleased with how easy this DIY lighting project was! I did it in just an afternoon and it turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. This was our lighting before. Lovely, isn’t it? I didn’t take a photo of this, but we disconnected the whole thing and I spray painted just the bottom bulb attachment part gold. The birdcage I spotted was originally $14 but was on sale for half price. I actually have had it sitting out for a few months with a succulent inside of it. I’m not sure if they still have this same on there, but maybe something similar! The cage part is separate from the bottom. I am still using the little gold tray on a table. All we did was saw off the bird on the top. It’s not perfect or pretty but this part isn’t visible once the light is up. I used a gold leaf paint pen to cover the cut areas just so they would blend a little better. Once all the paint was dry, we hung it! The whole process took maybe 30 minutes except for paint drying. I love it! The cut area at the top isn’t noticeable at all. I may get a more substantial light fixture in the future but this was a great cheap quick fix. Have you jumped on the caged light trend?
