Schrödinger’s Parakeet

My third birdcage lamp. Read the post to find out more.

After my first birdcage was done, I swore I’d never make another one. But I’ve proved myself a liar before, and I doubt this will be the last time.

To learn more about this lamp, read this post or this one.

I bought the birdcage below in a junk store on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and hung it as decoration for a few years. Then put it away for awhile. But eventually, everything I like seems to want to be a lamp, so I dug it out. A couple weeks of sweat and tears later, I finally had a light for my stairs.

  1. I wouldn’t be so harsh as to call you a ‘liar’. How about ‘politician’?


    • Ouch!

  2. what paper did you use to line the cage?
